## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from meters to millimeters is 1000, which means that 1 meter is equal to 1000 millimeters:

1 m = 1000 mm

To convert 17 meters into millimeters we have to multiply 17 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from meters to millimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 m → 1000 mm

17 m → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 17 m × 1000 mm

L(mm) = 17000 mm

The final result is:

17 m → 17000 mm

We conclude that 17 meters is equivalent to 17000 millimeters:

17 meters = 17000 millimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 millimeter is equal to 5.8823529411765E-5 × 17 meters.

Another way is saying that 17 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 5.8823529411765E-5 millimeters.

## Approximate result

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

17 m ≅ 17000 mm

An alternative is also that one millimeter is approximately zero times seventeen meters.
