How to Convert Square Meters to Square Centimeters

Calculators can be used to convert measurements from one unit to another

Convert square meters to square centimeters with this simple formula:

square centimeters = square meters × 10,000

Converting a square meter area measurement to a square centimeter measurement involves multiplying the area by the conversion ratio to find the result. One square meter is equal to 10,000 square centimeters, so to convert simply multiply by 10,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 square meters to square centimeters using the formula above.
5 sq m = (5 × 10,000) = 50,000 sq cm

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
