## 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 2 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 2 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

2 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 2 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 2000 m

The final result is:

2 km → 2000 m

We conclude that 2 kilometers is equivalent to 2000 meters:

2 kilometers = 2000 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 0.0005 × 2 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 2 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0005 meters.

## Approximate result

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

2 km ≅ 2000 m

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