How to Convert Centimeters to Kilometers Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Tape measures can be used to measure units of length, and a calculator can be used to convert to another unit

Convert centimeters to kilometers with this simple formula:

kilometers = centimeters × 1.0E-5

Converting a centimeter length measurement to a kilometer measurement involves multiplying your length by the conversion ratio to find the result. A centimeter is equal to 1.0E-5 kilometers, so to convert simply multiply by 1.0E-5.

For example:
5 cm = (5 × 1.0E-5) = 5.0E-5 km

Our inch fraction calculator can add centimeters and kilometers together and it also automatically converts the results to both imperial and metric values.
