Convert 55 Centimeters to Millimeters (cm to mm) with our conversion calculator.

55 Centimeters to Millimeters equals 550 mm.

To convert centimeters to millimeters, we utilize the relationship that 1 centimeter (cm) equals 10 millimeters (mm). This conversion factor is based on the metric system of measurement, where the millimeter is defined as one thousandth of a meter and the centimeter as one hundredth of a meter, thus making a centimeter ten times larger than a millimeter. The calculation to convert 55 cm to millimeters involves multiplying the length in centimeters (55 cm) by the conversion factor (10).

To carry out the calculation:

\([55 \, \text{cm} \times 10 = 550 \, \text{mm}]\)

Thus, 55 cm equals 550 millimeters. This multiplication is straightforward because every centimeter contains exactly 10 millimeters. This simplicity is one of the reasons the metric system is widely used in science and engineering: its consistent use of powers of ten makes conversions between units effortless.
