Centimeters (cm) to Kilometers (km) Converter

This length unit converter dynamically calculates a value you enter in centimeters (cm) and converts it to its equivalent value in kilometers (km).

How many centimeters (cm) are in 1 kilometer (km)? What is the formula for how to convert centimeters to kilometers (cm to km)?

1 centimeter (cm) = 0.00001 kilometer (km)
So we can say that there is 0.00001 kilometer in 1 centimeter.
This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a kilometer unit of measurement is 0.00001.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

1 kilometer (km) = 100,000 centimeters (cm)
So we can say that there are 100,000 centimeters in 1 kilometer.
This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a kilometer unit of measurement is 100,000.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in centimeters to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in kilometers (cm to km). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

km = cm ร— 0.00001 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

km = cm รท 100,000 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 200000 centimeters that you want to convert to kilometers, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

km = 200000 cm ร— 0.00001 = 2 km
km = 200000 cm รท 100,000 = 2 km

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 2 kilometers.
