## Square Millimeters and Square Centimeters

### Square millimeters

The square millimeter is one-thousand times smaller than the square meter, the unit for an area developed from the SI. The metric system’s prefix million refers to the value 10-3. Two popular acronyms are often used for “square millimeter,” and both of these abbreviations signify the same thing. Shorthand notations for square millimeters include both sq mm and mm2, which are often used.

### Square centimeters

One square centimeter is equal to the area of a square with four equal sides, each one centimeter in length. The square meter, which is derived from SI, is the standard for measuring area. The square centimeter is a factor of the square meter. Within the framework of the metric system, one “centi” equals ten and a half millimeters. A square centimeter is typically denoted by the sign “cm,” which stands for centimeters. Another frequent shorthand for square centimeters is cm2, which may also be written as sq cm.
