Meter to Hectometer Converter

How to convert from meters to hectometers?

To convert a distance or length from meters or m to hectometers or hm, follow the simple steps below:

  1. Write down the length value in meters (m).
  2. Multiply it by the value of a meter-to-hectometer conversion factor: 0.01.
  3. The result from multiplication is the value of a length or distance in hectometers or hm.

Meters to hectometers formula

Here is the equation to find the length or distance in hectometers (hm) when knowing the n-meters (m): n (m) = n × 0.01 (hm).

Fraction formula for converting from meters to hm:

$$n\ \text{hectometer} = \frac{n\ \text{meters}}{100}$$

Decimal formula:

$$hm= m \times 0.01$$

Scientific notion formula:

$$hm= m \times 10^2$$

Or remember the conversion factor: 1 m = 0.01 hm.

$$1\ m = 0.01\ hm$$


How to convert 374 meters to hectometers?

Write down 374 meters and multiply it by the meter-to-hectometer conversion factor: 0.01 or 102 to get hectometers:

$374\ m = 374 \times 0.01 = 3.74\ hm$

So 374 meters is equal to 3.74 hectometers or 3.74 hm.

How to convert 1600 meters to hectometers?

Write down 1600 meters and divide it by 100 to get hectometers:

$1\,600\ m = \frac{1\,600}{100} = 16\ hm$

So 1,600 meters is equal to 16 hectometers or 16 hm.

Alternatively, you can use our calculator by entering 1600 into the meter box, and you instantly get the length in hectometers, in this case, 16 hm.
