## 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 72 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 72 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

72 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 72 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 72000 m

The final result is:

72 km → 72000 m

We conclude that 72 kilometers is equivalent to 72000 meters:

72 kilometers = 72000 meters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 1.3888888888889E-5 × 72 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 72 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 1.3888888888889E-5 meters.

## Approximate result

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

72 km ≅ 72000 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately zero times seventy-two kilometers.
