## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from centimeters to kilometers is 1.0E-5, which means that 1 centimeter is equal to 1.0E-5 kilometers:

1 cm = 1.0E-5 km

To convert 1.7 centimeters into kilometers we have to multiply 1.7 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from centimeters to kilometers. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 cm → 1.0E-5 km

1.7 cm → L(km)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length L in kilometers:

L(km) = 1.7 cm × 1.0E-5 km

L(km) = 1.7E-5 km

The final result is:

1.7 cm → 1.7E-5 km

We conclude that 1.7 centimeters is equivalent to 1.7E-5 kilometers:

1.7 centimeters = 1.7E-5 kilometers

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilometer is equal to 58823.529411765 × 1.7 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 1.7 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 58823.529411765 kilometers.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one point seven centimeters is approximately zero kilometers:

1.7 cm ≅ 0 km

An alternative is also that one kilometer is approximately fifty-eight thousand eight hundred twenty-three point five two nine times one point seven centimeters.
