How to convert from meters to kilometers?

To convert a distance or length from meters or m to kilometers or km, follow the simple steps below:

  1. Write down the length value in meters (m).
  2. Multiply it by the value of a meter-to-kilometer conversion factor: 0.001.
  3. The result from multiplication is the value of a length or distance in kilometers or km.

Meters to kilometers formula

Here is the equation to find the length or distance in kilometers (km) when knowing the n-meters (m): n (m) = n × 0.001 (km).

Fraction formula for converting from meters to km:

$$n\ \text{kilometer} = \frac{n\ \text{meters}}{1000}$$

Decimal formula:

$$km= m \times 0.001$$

Scientific notion formula:

$$km= m \times 10^3$$

Or remember the conversion factor: 1 m = 0.001 km.

$$1\ m = 0.001\ km$$

Examples

How to convert 75 meters to kilometers?

Write down 75 meters and multiply it by the meter-to-kilometer conversion factor: 0.001 or 103 to get kilometers:

$75\ m = 75 \times 0.001 = 0.075\ km$

So 75 meters is equal to 0.075 km.

How to convert 89 meters to kilometers?

Write down 89 meters and divide it by 1,000 or 10-3 to get kilometers:

$89\ m = \frac{89}{1\,000} = 0.089\ km$

So 89 meters is equal to 0.089 km.

Alternatively, you can use our calculator by entering 89 into the meter box, and you instantly get the length in kilometers, in this case, 0.089 km.
