## What Is a Square Centimeter?

A square centimeter is a unit used to measure area.

The square centimeter, or square centimetre, is a multiple of the square meter, which is the SI derived unit for area. In the metric system, "centi" is the prefix for hundredths, or 10-2. A square centimeter is sometimes also referred to as a square cm. Square centimeters can be abbreviated as sq cm, and are also sometimes abbreviated as cm². For example, 1 square centimeter can be written as 1 sq cm or 1 cm².

You can use an area calculator to find the area of a space in square centimeters given the dimensions.

## How Much Is a Square Centimeter?

One square centimeter is equivalent to the area of a square with 1 centimeter long sides. One square centimeter is equal to 0.155 square inches or 1/10,000 of a square meter.

## How to Convert Square Centimeters

To convert square centimeters to another unit of area, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[1]

You can find the conversion factors for square centimeters in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the area measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

square centimeters × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
