### Units of Length:

The basic unit of length measurements in metric units is a metre (m).

1 millimetre (mm) = \( \frac{1}{1000\:m} \scriptsize = 10^{-3}\:m\)

1 centimetre (cm) = \( \frac{1}{100\:m}\scriptsize = 10^{-2}\:m\)

1 decimetre (dm) = \( \frac{1}{10\:m}\scriptsize = 10^{-1}\:m\)

1 decametre (Dm) = 10 m = 10^{1} m

1 hectometre (Hm) = 100 m = 10^{2} m

1 kilometre (Km) = 1,000 m = 10^{3} m
