The following is a list of definitions relating to conversions between square centimeters and square meters.

A square centimeter is a unit of area in the Metric System. The symbol for square centimeter is cm^{2}. There are 10,000 square centimeters in a square meter. A square centimeter is calculated as the area of a square that has 1 centimeter on each side. The International spelling is square centimetre.

A square meter is a unit of area in the Metric System. The symbol for square meter is m^{2}. There are 0.0001 square meters in a square centimeter. A square meter is calculated as the area of a square that has 1 meter on each side. The International spelling is square metre.

Let's take a closer look at the conversion formulas so that you can do these conversions yourself with a calculator or with an old-fashioned pencil and paper.

The formula to convert from cm^{2} to m^{2} is:

m^{2}= cm^{2}÷ 10,000

The formula to convert from m^{2} to cm^{2} is:

cm^{2}= m^{2}x 10,000

Next, let's look at some examples showing the work and calculations that are involved in converting from square centimeters to square meters (cm^{2} to m^{2}) or converting from square meters to square centimeters (m^{2} to cm^{2}).

Task: Convert 90,000 square centimeters to square meters (show work)Formula:cm^{2}÷ 10,000 = m^{2}Calculations:90,000 cm^{2}÷ 10,000 = 9 m^{2}Result:90,000 cm^{2}is equal to 9 m^{2}

Task: Convert 25 square meters to square centimeters (show work)Formula:m^{2}x 10,000 = cm^{2}Calculations:25 m^{2}x 10,000 = 250,000 cm^{2}Result:25 m^{2}is equal to 250,000 cm^{2}
