Below you can read additional information about the use of the calculator. Also, you will find useful information on the relationship between meters and kilometers along with a conversion table.

## How to use the calculator to convert from kilometers to meters?

Step 1: Write the distance in kilometers in the first input box.

Step 2: Its equivalent in meters will be displayed on the right-hand side of the calculator.

Step 3: Its equivalent in meters+centimeters and the process used to convert to meters will be shown in the additional panels.

## What is the relationship between kilometers and meters?

1 kilometer is equal to 1,000 meters. Alternatively, 1 meter is equal to 0.001 kilometers.

Kilometers and meters are units of distance or length in the metric system. Kilometers can be represented using the abbreviation km and meters can be represented using the abbreviation m.

The meter is the base unit of distance in the metric system. Therefore, the other units are derived using suffixes. In this case, kilo means 103, so 1 kilometer is equal to 1000 meters.

## How to convert kilometers to meters?

Since 1 kilometer is equal to 1,000 meters, we can convert kilometers to meters by dividing by 1,000. Therefore, we can form the following formula:

#### Example 1:

How many meters are equal to 4 kilometers?

Multiplying the kilometers by 1000, we have:

d(m) = 4 × 1000

d(m) = 4 000 m

#### Example 2:

Find the number of meters that are equal to 15.5 kilometers.

Multiplying kilometers by 1000, we have:

d(m) = 15.5 × 1 000

d(m) = 15500 m

#### Example 3:

Determine how many meters are equal to 17.59 kilometers.

Multiplying the distance in kilometers by 1,000, we have:

d(m) = 17.59 × 1000

d(m) = 17590 m
