## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from kilometers to millimeters is 1000000, which means that 1 kilometer is equal to 1000000 millimeters:

1 km = 1000000 mm

To convert 5 kilometers into millimeters we have to multiply 5 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from kilometers to millimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 km → 1000000 mm

5 km → L_{(mm)}

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length *L* in millimeters:

L_{(mm)} = 5 km × 1000000 mm

L_{(mm)} = 5000000 mm

The final result is:

5 km → 5000000 mm

We conclude that **5 kilometers is equivalent to 5000000 millimeters**:

5 kilometers = 5000000 millimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 millimeter is equal to 2.0E-7 × 5 kilometers**.

Another way is saying that *5 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 2.0E-7 millimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **five kilometers is approximately five million millimeters**:

5 km ≅ 5000000 mm

An alternative is also that *one millimeter is approximately zero times five kilometers*.
