Kilometers (km) to Centimeters (cm) Converter

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

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

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

Inversely (or reciprocally),

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

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 kilometers to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in centimeters (km to cm). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

cm = km ร— 100,000 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

cm = km รท 0.00001 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 2 kilometers that you want to convert to centimeters, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

cm = 2 km ร— 100,000 = 200,000 cm
cm = 2 km รท 0.00001 = 200,000 cm

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 200,000 centimeters.

Kilometers to centimeters (km to cm) conversion chart

To save you time and effort spent on having to perform manual calculations or look up conversion formulas every time a conversion from kilometers to centimeters is needed, here is a kilometers-to-centimeters conversion chart for your quick and easy reference. This conversion chart (or conversion table) shows common measurement values of length in kilometers and their equivalent measurement values in centimeters. These equivalent measurement values may be rounded off to 1 or 2 decimal places when it is mathematically expedient for everyday applications.
