In the imperial system, a meter is equal to about 3.2 feet or 3 feet 3 inches.
The metric system is the standard of measurement used nearly everywhere in the world except in the United States; thus, it is the primary measurement system for scientific studies.

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.
How to Convert Meter to Kilometers?
To convert Meter to Kilometers, simply divide the Meter value by 1000.
The formula used to calculate Meter to Kilometers -
d(m) = d(km) / 1000
The distance d in Kilometers (km) is equal to the distance d in Meters (m) divided by 1000.
How many Kilometers in a Meter
In simple terms, 1 m is equal to 0.001 km.
The formula used is 1/1000 = 0.001(km)
How many Meters in a Kilometer
1 Kilometer is equal to 1000 Meters. So we can also say that there are 1000 Meters in a Kilometer.
