## 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 972 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 972 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

972 km → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 972 km × 1000 m

L_{(m)} = 972000 m

The final result is:

972 km → 972000 m

We conclude that **972 kilometers is equivalent to 972000 meters**:
