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 138 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 138 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

138 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 138 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 138000 m

The final result is:

138 km → 138000 m

We conclude that 138 kilometers is equivalent to 138000 meters:

138 kilometers = 138000 meters

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 7.2463768115942E-6 × 138 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 138 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 7.2463768115942E-6 meters.

Approximate result

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

138 km ≅ 138000 m

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