  Centimetre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A centimetre (US: centimeter) is a factor of the SI unit of length: there are one hundred centimeters in the base unit of measure, the metre.
A centimetre is approximately the width of an adult fingernail or the fl keys of a piano.
One cubic centimetre in volume is equal to one millilitre.

The swap partners were determined during the scheduling (virtually all centimetre projects were considered as a potential partner to swap with a millimetre proposal), generally not by the observers.
Although the centimetre observer was alerted to this during the early stage of the observation, they were not in a position to resolve the problem.
A centimetre of capacitance is the capacitance between a sphere of radius 1 cm in vacuum and infinity.

 3mm weather Predictions and 2002 Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
If the weather was poor when the 3mm project came to observe, then the centimetre project could be swapped in, and the 3mm project deferred to the centimetre slot.
The centimetre proposer was responsible for observing the centimetre program only if the swap did not happen.
A disadvantage of the swap scheme has been that the centimetre observers have had little say in whether their project is a suitable candidate for swapping.

Sunspot number is defined from counts of the number of individual sunspots as well as the number of sunspot groups and must be reduced to a standard scale taking into account the differences in equipment and techniques between observatories.
On the other hand, the radio flux at 10.7 centimetres can be measured relatively easily and quickly and has replaced the sunspot number as an index of solar activity for many purposes.
The figure is a plot of the monthly-averaged sunspot number against the monthly-averaged 10 centimetre solar flux for data between 1947 and 1990.

 How much room?
The square centimetre is introduced first, because it is small enough to measure common objects.
The children should be encouraged to develop their own reference for a centimetre, for example, a fingernail or a small button.
As the children become familiar with the size of the square centimetre they should be given many opportunities to estimate before using precise measurement.

 The Metric System
The most common metric units of length used are the kilometre (km), the metre (m), the centimetre (cm) and the millimetre (mm).
It is clear from the visual comparison of the lengths that a centimetre is a larger unit than a millimetre or conversely that a millimetre is a smaller unit than a centimetre.
a metre is a larger unit than a centimetre or conversely that a centimetre is a smaller unit than a metre.

 Perplexing Perimeters
In the process of constructing their own “rulers” the students develop a sense of the size of a centimetre and metre.
As the students select the appropriate “ruler” for the tasks they learn to choose that the section of the measuring instrument we are using/making is determined by the exactness of the measurement needed.
This unit also provides opportunities for the students to appreciate that all measurements are approximate and that the selection of the measuring tool for a task depends on the precision required.

If 2003 saw a number of broadsheet papers switch to the international format of seven columns from the traditional eight columns in terms of layout and size, 2004 could be the year when newspapers in general set about redefining parameters of advertising space.
In other words, column centimetre could give way to square centimetre as the de facto unit of measurement of advertising space.
The Lokmat group, however, continues to use the eight-column format as opposed to the seven-column initiative adopted by many, though the overall size of the paper is down to 32 cm, implying, that per-column width has reduced.

 Centimeter gram second system of units - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
CGS units are today no longer accepted by the house styles of most scientific journals, textbook publishers and standards bodies.
The units gram and centimetre remain useful within the SI, especially for instructional physics and chemistry experiments, where they match well the small scales of table-top setups.
Further complicating matters is the fact that some physicists and engineers in the United States use hybrid units, such as volts per centimeter for electric field.

Under this scheme, a partnering centimetre project is scheduled about two days after a 3-mm project.
Observers are advised that there is potentially a significant amount of centimetre time available during the millimetre seasons for swap projects that require compact configurations.
Large centimetre projects that could be used as "backups" during poor weather are also encouraged.

 Scheduling the ATNF at millimetre wavelengths
When the observations switch to centimetre wavelengths, a choice has to be made of which centimetre project to observe.
Thus if a centimetre observer were observing in a suitable configuration, and the weather became suitable for millimetre observing, then the array could be switched to millimetre observing and the centimetre project would then be placed in the backup queue for observing by millimetre observers when conditions became appropriate.
In either case, the millimetre or centimetre observer would be guaranteed his/her observing time by the end of the term.

Because the smallest unit on the ruler you are using is one centimetre, the precision of your measurement is to the nearest centimetre.
Because the smallest unit on the ruler you are now using is one millimetre (one tenth of a centimetre), the precision of your measurement is to the nearest millimetre, or tenth of a centimetre.
Suppose for example, you purchased a very expensive measuring device, with units of one thousandth of a centimetre, and measured the pencil again.

At Tuvalu, which will be experiencing its highest tides in 15 years next week, the trend in sea level rise over the past 13 years has been 5.7 millimetres a year, a cumulative rise of about seven centimetres.
The project coordinators urge that caution be exercised in interpreting any of the trend data because they say longer term recordings are needed.
