## 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 46 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 46 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

46 km → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 46 km × 1000 m

L_{(m)} = 46000 m

The final result is:

46 km → 46000 m

We conclude that **46 kilometers is equivalent to 46000 meters**:

46 kilometers = 46000 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 meter is equal to 2.1739130434783E-5 × 46 kilometers**.

Another way is saying that *46 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 2.1739130434783E-5 meters*.

## Approximate result

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

46 km ≅ 46000 m

An alternative is also that *one meter is approximately zero times forty-six kilometers*.
