Square centimeters (cm²) are units of measurement for rather small areas and square meters (m²) for rather larger areas. The conversion is carried out using a factor of 10,000, which means that 1 m² is converted to 10,000 cm². Conversely, 1 cm² is exactly 0.0001 m².

Square centimeter (cm2) Square meter (m2)
1 cm2 0,0001 m2
100 cm2 0,01 m2
10.000 cm2 1 m2
50.000 cm2 5 m2
100.000 cm2 10 m2

A square centimeter (cm²) is a unit of measurement for areas and is the smallest unit in the metric system. It measures a cube with an edge length of 1 centimeter. A square meter (m²), on the other hand, is a much larger unit and is 10,000 times the volume of the square centimeter.

So if you want to know how to convert cm² to m², you need to understand the ratio of cm² to m². The factor (F) for converting cm² to m² is 0.0001. This means that 1 cm² is equal to 0.0001 m². For example, if you want to convert 20 cm² to m², you have to calculate 20 x 0.0001 = 0.002 m².

Conversely, you can also use the factor based on the larger scale: For example, if you want to convert 4 m² into cm², you have to calculate 4 x 10000 = 40 000 cm2.
