Millimeter is spelled *millimetre* internationally,
and it is equal in length to .1 centimeters, 1000 micrometers, or ^{5}/_{127} inch. They are represented by the
smallest ticks on most metric rulers. To get a reference point of the size,
the thickness of a dime is 1.35mm.

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.
