Conversion formula

The conversion factor from kilometers to meters is 1000, which means that 1 kilometer is equal to 1000 meters:

1 km = 1000 m

To convert 10 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 10 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from kilometers to meters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 km → 1000 m

10 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 10 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 10000 m

The final result is:

10 km → 10000 m

We conclude that 10 kilometers is equivalent to 10000 meters:

10 kilometers = 10000 meters

10 kilometers is equal to 10000 meters

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 0.0001 × 10 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 10 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0001 meters.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that ten kilometers is approximately ten thousand meters:

10 km ≅ 10000 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately zero times ten kilometers.
