## 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
