Learn How to Convert Kilometers to Millimeters Using our Conversion Formula
Converting a kilometer length measurement to a millimeter measurement involves multiplying your length by the conversion ratio to find the result. A kilometer is equal to 1000000 millimeters, so to convert simply multiply by 1000000.
For example, 5km = (5 × 1000000) = 5,000,000mm.
Our inch fraction calculator can add kilometers and millimeters together and it also automatically converts the results to both imperial and metric values.

Millimeter is spelled millimetre internationally, and it is equal in length to .1 centimeters, 1000 micrometers, or 5/127 inch. They are represented by the smallest ticks on most metric rulers. To get a reference point of the size, the thickness of a dime is 1.35mm.
We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs. If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers which include both imperial and metric measurements.
