Note these are surface tension units, where you divide the units. If you meant to convert torque, use the dash symbol to multiply, like N-m instead of N/m.

 N/cm N/m

How many N/cm in 1 N/m? The answer is 0.01.
We assume you are converting between newton/centimetre and newton/metre.

# ››Definition: Newton/meter

Surface tension is measured in force per unit length. The SI unit is Newton per metre but the CGS unit of dyne per cm is also used. One dyn/cm corresponds to 0.001 N/m.
