## 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

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 2.1141649048626E-6 × 473 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 473 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 2.1141649048626E-6 meters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that four hundred seventy-three kilometers is approximately four hundred seventy-three thousand meters:

473 km ≅ 473000 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately zero times four hundred seventy-three kilometers.
