## 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 473 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 473 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

473 km → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 473 km × 1000 m

L_{(m)} = 473000 m

The final result is:

473 km → 473000 m

We conclude that **473 kilometers is equivalent to 473000 meters**:

473 kilometers = 473000 meters
