Internationally the centimeter is actually spelled centimetre and it's equal to 10 millimeters, .01 meters, or .393701 inches. Metric rulers have 30 cm and they are the larger measurement. A standard pencil is just about 1cm thick, and can be used to get a rough idea of the size of a centimeter.

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs. If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers which include both imperial and metric measurements.
