## 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 256 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 256 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

256 km → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 256 km × 1000 m

L_{(m)} = 256000 m

The final result is:

256 km → 256000 m

We conclude that **256 kilometers is equivalent to 256000 meters**:

256 kilometers = 256000 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 meter is equal to 3.90625E-6 × 256 kilometers**.
