## 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 2 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 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

2 cm → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 2 cm × 0.01 m

L_{(m)} = 0.02 m

The final result is:

2 cm → 0.02 m

We conclude that **2 centimeters is equivalent to 0.02 meters**:

2 centimeters = 0.02 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 meter is equal to 50 × 2 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *2 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 50 meters*.

## Approximate result

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

2 cm ≅ 0.02 m

An alternative is also that *one meter is approximately fifty times two centimeters*.
