To convert a mile measurement to a centimeter measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio. One mile is equal to 160,934.4 centimeters, so use this simple formula to convert:

centimeters = miles × 160,934.4

The length in centimeters is equal to the miles multiplied by 160,934.4.

For example, here's how to convert 5 miles to centimeters using the formula above.
5 mi = (5 × 160,934.4) = 804,672 cm

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

Miles and centimeters are both units used to measure length. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Miles

The mile is a linear measurement of length equal to exactly 1,609.344 meters. One mile is also equal to 5,280 feet or 1,760 yards.

The mile is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Miles can be abbreviated as mi, and are also sometimes abbreviated as m. For example, 1 mile can be written as 1 mi or 1 m.

Centimeters

One centimeter is equal to one-hundredth (1/100) of a meter, which is defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in a 1/299,792,458 second time interval.

The centimeter, or centimetre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, "centi" is the prefix for 10-2. Centimeters can be abbreviated as cm, for example 1 centimeter can be written as 1 cm.

Metric rulers typically have 30 cm, which are represented by 30 large tick marks. To get a rough idea of the actual length of a centimeter, a standard pencil is just about 1cm thick.

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.
