### Convert 1000 square centimeters to square meters?

There are 100 centimeters to a meter. Therefore a square meter
has 100 X 100 square (one meter X one meter) centimeters, or 10,000
square centimeters.
1000 square centimeters divided by 10,000 square centimeters
(one square meter) equals 0.1 square meters. A meter is equal to
100 centimeters. A square meter is 100 centimeters times 100
centimeters or 10000 square centimeters. Therefore 1000 square
centimeters is equal to 1000 divided by 10000 or 0.1 square
meters.

### How many square centimeters in a cubic meter?

This is a nonsensical question as one is a unit of area and the
other a unit of volume.
One square meter is 100*100 square centimeters, so there are
10,000 square centimeters in one square meter.
If you have a cube that is 1m x 1m x 1m, there would be six
sides each having 10,000 square centimeters so the total surface
area would be 60,000 square centimeters.
A 1m x 1m surface has 10,000 square centimeters, so if you raise
that 1m (100 centimeters) you get a volume of 1,000,000 cubic
centimeters.
