Things to know

## How to Convert Kilometers to Centimeters ?

For the conversion of a kilometer measurement to a centimeter measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio. Since 1 kilometer is equal to 100,000 centimeters. So, the length in centimeters is equal to the kilometers multiplied by 100,000, as you can see in its formula.

Centimeters = Kilometers × 100,000

To understand properly, let’s take an example –

Example : Convert 6 km in cm

Solution: First of all, Place the unit of km into the formula that we discussed earlier, the result will be

= 6 * 1,00,000 = 600000 cm

Therefore, 6 Kilometers is equal to 600000 Centimeters.

## How Many Centimeters Are in a Kilometer?

There are 100,000 centimeters in a kilometer that’s why we use this value in the formula.

[1 km = 100,000 cm]

Both, kilometers and centimeters, are units used to measure length.
