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 470 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 470 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

470 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 470 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 470000 m

The final result is:

470 km → 470000 m

We conclude that 470 kilometers is equivalent to 470000 meters:

470 kilometers = 470000 meters
