The International System of Units is called "SI"
and is the Metric Measurement used in America.

millimeter (mm)
also spelled millimetre
1 one thousandth from
a meter (0.001 m)

There are exactly 1000 m (millimeters) in the
Base Unit of measure meter.

Use the symbol mm


1 millimeter
(1 mm)

Remember, milli is the
prefix meaning
1 one thousandth (0.001).
So 1 one thousandth of the
base unit meter
being 1 millimeter is simply
written 1 mm

 

1 mm (1 millimeter)
about the thickness of an
ordinary paper clip.

 

A guitar string can be
about 1 mm thick.

 

 The thickness of a credit card
is
about 1 mm

 

3 mm of rain wouldn't keep
you from a
pleasant day of golf.

 

35 mm of rain is
a torrential downpour.

Rainfall is measured in millimeters.

 

 Film for this camera
is
35 mm

 

1000 mm (millimeters) 1 meter

If a "dime" is about 1 mm (millimeter) thick, then
1000 dimes placed side by side would be... 

Rainfall is measured in millimeters (mm)

Snowfall is measured in centimeters (cm)

Larger Measurement from a millimeter

1 centimeter
(1 cm)

Remember, centi is the prefix meaning
1 one hundredth of the base unit meter.
So, 1 one hundredth of a meter (0.01 m)
is simply written 1 cm

 Larger Measurement from a centimeter

1 meter
(1 m)

Remember meter is the
Base Unit for Length
and all other Units are derived from it.
There are exactly 1000 millimeters
(1000 mm) in 1 meter (1 m)

Larger Measurement from a meter

1 kilometer
(1 km)

Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning
1000 times as much.
So, one thousand meters (1000 m)
being the length of 1 kilometer,
is simply written 1 km which is pronounced
"KILL-oh-meet-ur" NOT "kill-AH-mit-ur".
