## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from kilometers to centimeters is 100000, which means that 1 kilometer is equal to 100000 centimeters:

1 km = 100000 cm

To convert 470 kilometers into centimeters we have to multiply 470 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from kilometers to centimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 km → 100000 cm

470 km → L(cm)

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

L(cm) = 470 km × 100000 cm

L(cm) = 47000000 cm

The final result is:

470 km → 47000000 cm

We conclude that 470 kilometers is equivalent to 47000000 centimeters:

470 kilometers = 47000000 centimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 centimeter is equal to 2.1276595744681E-8 × 470 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 470 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 2.1276595744681E-8 centimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that four hundred seventy kilometers is approximately forty-seven million centimeters:

470 km ≅ 47000000 cm

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