What is the SI unit of length?

The SI (International System of Units) unit of length is the meter (symbol is m). It is defined as the length of the path travelled by the light in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 of a second. 

The meter is widely used in scientific and technical contexts around the world and in academia. It is also the basis for many other units of measurement for length, such as the kilometer (1,000 meters), centimeter (0.01 meters), and millimeter (0.001 meters).
