### Kilometer to Meters (How many meters in a kilometer?)

The kilometer to meters conversion calculator is used to convert the volume in kilometer (km) to volume in meters (m). The first procedure when using this converter is to enter the value in kilometer in the blank text field. Press the ‘Convert' button to initiate the conversion from Kilometer to meters. The conversion result is displayed below the control buttons in meters. It gives quick and accurate results based on the input values. The ‘Reset' button is used to erase all data of the previous conversions from the calculator.

##### Example

Convert 0.5 kilometers to meters

##### Solution

First, enter the value in kilometer (0.5) in the blank text field. Press the ‘Convert' button to get the results in meters.

0.5 kilometer = 500 meters

This means that there are 500 meters in 0.5 kilometers.

Use the same procedure when performing a new conversion in kilometer to get the corresponding results in meters.

If the values to be converted are in meters, we recommend using the meters to kilometer converter.** **

## Kilometers to Meters Conversion

#### How many meters in a kilometer?

The volume units' conversion factor of kilometer to meters is 1000

1 kilometer = 1000 meters

1 kilometer = 1000 meters

Therefore, there are 1000 meters in one kilometer.

If you want to determine the number of meters in a kilometer, simply multiply the value in kilometer by the conversion factor.

For example; how many meters are in 0.56 kilometer?

Solution; 0.56 x 1000 = 560 meters in 0.56 kilometer.

There are 10 meters in a decameter, 10 decameters in a hectometer and 10 hectometers in a kilometer. This makes 10 x 10 x 10 = 1000 meters in a kilometer.
