## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from centimeters to kilometers is 1.0E-5, which means that 1 centimeter is equal to 1.0E-5 kilometers:

1 cm = 1.0E-5 km

To convert 480 centimeters into kilometers we have to multiply 480 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from centimeters to kilometers. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 cm → 1.0E-5 km

480 cm → L(km)

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

L(km) = 480 cm × 1.0E-5 km

L(km) = 0.0048 km

The final result is:

480 cm → 0.0048 km

We conclude that 480 centimeters is equivalent to 0.0048 kilometers:

480 centimeters = 0.0048 kilometers

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilometer is equal to 208.33333333333 × 480 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 480 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 208.33333333333 kilometers.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that four hundred eighty centimeters is approximately zero point zero zero five kilometers:

480 cm ≅ 0.005 km

An alternative is also that one kilometer is approximately two hundred eight point three three three times four hundred eighty centimeters.
