To convert 472 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 472 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

472 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 472 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 472000 m

The final result is:

472 km → 472000 m

We conclude that 472 kilometers is equivalent to 472000 meters:
