## What is Centimeter?

A centimeter or “cm”, is a unit of length in the international system of units (SI). A centimeter is 1\100 th of a meter and is obviously smaller than an inch. It comes from a Latin word “centum”. First used in 1801, the prefix of this word “centi” shows that it is equal to one hundredth of a meter. A centimeter is roughly the width of the fingernail of an average adult. When you use a ruler, it is clearly visible that there are markings for centimeter as well as inches on each side of the ruler.

Centimeter, just like meter, is used in all sorts of applications. The cm is usually, used to measure many things in the day-to-day life including the length of the car tire or the size of your notebook. In addition to measuring length, cm has other different uses, which involve measuring the level of rainfall in an area as recorded by a rain gauge (a scientific instrument used to measure amount of liquid precipitation) and converting large distances into cm and measuring them in cm on maps and globes.
