16 Centimeters to Meters equals 0.1600 m.

To convert 16 centimeters to meters, you'll use the fundamental relationship between centimeters and meters. There are 100 centimeters in a meter. This relationship is the basis for conversion between the two units of measurement. To calculate, you divide the length value in centimeters by 100 because a meter is 100 times larger than a centimeter.

For this specific calculation, you divide 16 (centimeters) by 100 to get the length in meters. The calculation looks like this: ( \frac{16 cm}{100} = 0.16 meters ). So, 16 centimeters is equivalent to 0.16 meters. This conversion is quite straightforward once you understand that you are essentially moving the decimal place two positions to the left to convert from centimeters to meters.
