How to Convert Meters to Millimeters

Tape measures can be used to measure units of length, and a calculator can be used to convert to another unit

Convert meters to millimeters with this simple formula:

millimeters = meters × 1,000

Converting a meter length measurement to a millimeter measurement involves multiplying the length by the conversion ratio to find the result. One meter is equal to 1,000 millimeters, so to convert simply multiply by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 meters to millimeters using the formula above.
5 m = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 mm

Our inch fraction calculator can add meters and millimeters together and it also automatically converts the results to US customary, imperial and SI metric values.

The meter is the primary unit of length in the metric system. It's equal to 100 centimeters or 39.37 inches. Internationally it is actually spelled metre. It was first defined 1793 as 1/10,000,000 the length from the equator to the North Pole. The current definition of a meter, adopted in 1983, is the distance light travels in 1/299,792,458 seconds and was adopted to in 1983.

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.
