## How to perform key conversions involving length measurements

The formulas for conversion are represented below:

### Centimeters to Kilometers Formula

km = cm / 100000

Example: 5 Centimeters in Kilometers:

km = cm / 100000

km = 5 / 100000

km = 0,00005

### Kilometers to Centimeters Formula

cm = km * 100000

Example: 10 Kilometers in Centimeters:

cm = km * 100000

cm = 40 * 100000

cm = 4000000 = 4x106

## Frequently asked questions involving length and distance

### 100 Centimeters are equal to how many Kilometers

Considering that 1 Centimeter is equivalent to 0.00001 Kilometers, you can use a rule of three to obtain that 7 Centimeters equal 0.00007 Kilometer.

1 cm - 0,00001 km

7 cm - x

Apply the rule of three and get:

x cm = 0,00007 km2

x = 0,00007 km = 7x10-5 km

### 100 Kilometers is equal to how many Centimeters?

If there are 100000 Centimeters for every 1 Kilometer, just multiply the number of Kilometers (100) by 100000, so you will obtain that 100 km equals 10,000,000 cm. Observe the calculation below:

cm = km * 100000

cm = 100 * 100000

cm = 10000000 = 1x107
