## 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 478 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 478 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

478 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 478 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 478000 m

The final result is:

478 km → 478000 m

We conclude that 478 kilometers is equivalent to 478000 meters:

478 kilometers = 478000 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 2.092050209205E-6 × 478 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 478 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 2.092050209205E-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-eight kilometers is approximately four hundred seventy-eight thousand meters:

478 km ≅ 478000 m

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