## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from centimeters to meters is 0.01, which means that 1 centimeter is equal to 0.01 meters:

1 cm = 0.01 m

To convert 10.2 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 10.2 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from centimeters to meters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 cm → 0.01 m

10.2 cm → L(m)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length L in meters:

L(m) = 10.2 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 0.102 m

The final result is:

10.2 cm → 0.102 m

We conclude that 10.2 centimeters is equivalent to 0.102 meters:

10.2 centimeters = 0.102 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 9.8039215686275 × 10.2 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 10.2 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 9.8039215686275 meters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that ten point two centimeters is approximately zero point one zero two meters:

10.2 cm ≅ 0.102 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately nine point eight zero four times ten point two centimeters.
