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 550 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 550 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

550 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 550 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 550000 m

The final result is:

550 km → 550000 m

We conclude that 550 kilometers is equivalent to 550000 meters:

550 kilometers = 550000 meters

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 1.8181818181818E-6 × 550 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 550 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 1.8181818181818E-6 meters.

Approximate result

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

550 km ≅ 550000 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately zero times five hundred fifty kilometers.
