## 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 502 centimeters into kilometers we have to multiply 502 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

502 cm → L(km)

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

L(km) = 502 cm × 1.0E-5 km

L(km) = 0.00502 km

The final result is:

502 cm → 0.00502 km

We conclude that 502 centimeters is equivalent to 0.00502 kilometers:

502 centimeters = 0.00502 kilometers

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilometer is equal to 199.203187251 × 502 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 502 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 199.203187251 kilometers.

## Approximate result

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

502 cm ≅ 0.005 km

An alternative is also that one kilometer is approximately one hundred ninety-nine point two zero three times five hundred two centimeters.
