# How Many Millimeters Are In A Meter?

Millimeters and meters are directly related units of length and it is very easy to convert millimeters to meters and meters to millimeters.

In order to convert millimeters to meters and meters to millimeters, feel free to use our conversion chart, conversion calculator, but also, learn the relationship between these units.

Just be aware that the "milli (m)" is one of the official unit prefixes in the International System (SI) of Units and means one-thousandth (1/1000 = 1/10^{3} = 10^{-3}) - so one millimeter is one-thousandth of one meter.

## Conversion Formulas

Both millimeters (mm) and meters (m) are units of length, with the following relation between them:

**1 meter (m) = 1000 millimeters (mm)**

**1 millimeter (mm) = 1/1000 meter = 0.001 meter (m)**

Again, "milli (m)" is one of the official unit prefixes in the International System (SI) of Units and means one-thousandth (1/1000 = 1/10^{3} = 10^{-3}) - one millimeter is one-thousandth of a meter.

Thus, in order to convert the length given in millimeters into the length given in meters and vice versa, be sure to remember the following formulas:

**L _{meters} = L_{millimeters }/ 1000**

**L _{millimeters} = L_{meters }* 1000**

## Millimeters to Meters and Meters to Millimeters Conversion Examples

Using conversion formulas, it is fairly easy to convert millimeters to meters and meters to millimeters:

### 500 millimeters to meters:

**L _{(m)} = 500 millimeters / 1000 = 0.5 m**

### 3.675 meters to millimeters:

**L _{(mm)} = 3.675 meters * 1000 = 3675 mm**

Millimeters are very small lengths measured with very accurate apparatuses, for example, gun barrel diameters and similar.

But, meters and millimeters are often measured using a simple tape measure, for example, the length of some pipes:

**L = 283 mm = 0.283 m**

etc.

So, when converting millimeters to meters and meters to millimeters, just be sure to multiply and divide by 1000 and that is all.
