## 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 170 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 170 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

170 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 170 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 170000 m

The final result is:

170 km → 170000 m

We conclude that 170 kilometers is equivalent to 170000 meters:

170 kilometers = 170000 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 5.8823529411765E-6 × 170 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 170 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 5.8823529411765E-6 meters.

## Approximate result

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

170 km ≅ 170000 m

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