## 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 480 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 480 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

480 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 480 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 480000 m

The final result is:

480 km → 480000 m

We conclude that 480 kilometers is equivalent to 480000 meters:

480 kilometers = 480000 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 2.0833333333333E-6 × 480 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 480 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 2.0833333333333E-6 meters.

## Approximate result

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

480 km ≅ 480000 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately zero times four hundred eighty kilometers.
