Centimeters to Kilometers Calculator





This calculator allows you to convert a distance in centimeters to kilometers. By entering the number of centimeters, you will immediately get its equivalent in kilometers and kilometers + meters.

Below you can read additional information about using the calculator and about the general relationship between centimeters and kilometers. In addition, you will be able to use a table from centimeters to kilometers.

How to use the calculator to convert from centimeters to kilometers?

Step 1: Enter the distance in centimeters in the first input box. You can use any real value.

Step 2: The distance in kilometers will be displayed on the right-hand side panel.

Step 3: The equivalent in kilometers + meters and the process used to obtain the number of kilometers will be shown at the bottom.

How many centimeters are there in a kilometer?

1 kilometer contains 100,000 centimeters. Alternatively, 1 centimeter is equal to 0.00001 kilometers.

Centimeters and kilometers are both units of distance in the metric system. In this system, the base unit of distance is the meter. The other units are derived from the meter.

We use suffixes to name units derived from the meter. In this case, centi equals 10-2, so we multiply the distance in centimeters by 0.01 to get the distance in meters. And kilo is equal to 103, so one kilometer is equal to 1000 meters.

Therefore, we can conclude that between centimeters and kilometers there is a difference of 105, that is, 5 digits.

How to transform from centimeters to kilometers?

To convert centimeters to kilometers, we have to divide centimeters by 100,000. Or alternatively, we can multiply centimeters by 0.00001 to get kilometers.

d(km) = d(cm)/100000

Example 1:

How many kilometers are equal to 300,000 cm?

We divide the number of centimeters by 100,000 to get the number of kilometers:

d(km) = 300000/100000

d(km) = 3 km

Example 2:

Find the number of kilometers equivalent to 550,000 cm.

Get the distance in kilometers by dividing by 100,000:

d(km) = 550000/100000

d(km) = 5.5 km

Example 3:

Convert 80,000 centimeters to kilometers.

If we divide centimeters by 100,000, we have:

d(km) = 80000/100000

d(km) = 0.8 km
