### What is a Kilometer?

The **Kilometre **(SI symbol: km) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one thousand metres (kilo- being the SI prefix for 1000).

A kilometer is a metric system unit mainly used to express distance in most of the world; notable exceptions are the United States and the United Kingdom, where the mile is the unit used. Even though kilometers and miles are used for measuring the same unit (distance), the value differs.

### What is a Centimeter?

A **Centimeter** (abbreviation, cm) is a unit for measuring length in the metric system of measurement. A Centimeter is equal to one hundredth of a metre (1/100).

The centimetre remains a practical unit of length for many everyday measurements of the length of objects and small distances.

A meter consists of 100 centimeters, a square meter consists of 10,000 square centimeters, and a cubic meter consists of 1,000,000 cubic centimeters.

### How to Convert Kilometer to Centimeters?

To convert Kilometer to Centimeters, simply multiply the Kilometer value by 100000.

The formula used to calculate Kilometer to Centimeters -

**d**_{(km)} = **d**_{(cm)} * 100000

The distance *d* in Centimeters (cm) is equal to the distance *d* in Kilometers (km) multiplied by 100000.

### How many Centimeters in a Kilometer

In simple terms, 1 km is equal to 100000 cm.

The formula used is 1*100000 = 100000(cm)

### How many Kilometers in a Centimeter

1 Centimeter is equal to 1e-05 Kilometers. So we can also say that there are 1e-05 Kilometers in a Centimeter.
