To convert 490 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 490 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

490 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 490 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 490000 m

The final result is:

490 km → 490000 m

We conclude that 490 kilometers is equivalent to 490000 meters:

490 kilometers = 490000 meters
