The meter represents the basic unit of measurement in the metric system. For example, distances traveled are measured in meters, not hectometers. In fact, the hectometer is not widely used in those countries that utilize the metric system as a means of measurement. There are 10,000 centimeters in a hectometer. A hectometer should not be confused with a hectare, which is the metric term used in place of acre. A hectare is 1,000 square meters.
