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 100 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 100 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

100 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 100 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 100000 m

The final result is:

100 km → 100000 m

We conclude that 100 kilometers is equivalent to 100000 meters:

100 kilometers = 100000 meters

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 1.0E-5 × 100 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 100 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 1.0E-5 meters.

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 one hundred thousand meters:

100 km ≅ 100000 m

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