Conversion formula

The conversion factor from kilometers to centimeters is 100000, which means that 1 kilometer is equal to 100000 centimeters:

1 km = 100000 cm

To convert 100 kilometers into centimeters we have to multiply 100 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from kilometers to centimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 km → 100000 cm

100 km → L(cm)

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

L(cm) = 100 km × 100000 cm

L(cm) = 10000000 cm

The final result is:

100 km → 10000000 cm

We conclude that 100 kilometers is equivalent to 10000000 centimeters:

100 kilometers = 10000000 centimeters

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 centimeter is equal to 1.0E-7 × 100 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 100 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 1.0E-7 centimeters.

Approximate result

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

100 km ≅ 10000000 cm

An alternative is also that one centimeter is approximately zero times one hundred kilometers.
