## How to Convert Millimeters to Kilometers

To convert a measurement in millimeters to a measurement in kilometers, divide the length by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 millimeters/kilometer.

Since one kilometer is equal to 1,000,000 millimeters, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The length in kilometers is equal to the length in millimeters divided by 1,000,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5,000,000 millimeters to kilometers using the formula above.

Our inch fraction calculator can add millimeters and kilometers together, and it also automatically converts the results to US customary, imperial, and SI metric values.

Millimeters and kilometers are both units used to measure length. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What is a Millimeter?

One millimeter is equal to one-thousandth (1/1,000) of a meter, which is defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in ^{1}/_{299,792,458} of a second.
One millimeter is equal to 0.0393701 inches.

The millimeter, or millimetre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for thousandths, or 10^{-3}. Millimeters can be abbreviated as *mm*; for example, 1 millimeter can be written as 1 mm.

Millimeters are often represented by the smallest ticks on most metric rulers.
To get a reference point of the size, the thickness of a US dime is 1.35mm.^{[1]}

## What is a Kilometer?

One kilometer is equal to 1,000 meters, which are defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in a ^{1}/_{299,792,458} second time interval.^{[2]} One kilometer is equal to 0.621371 miles.

The kilometer, or kilometre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 10^{3}. Kilometers can be abbreviated as *km*; for example, 1 kilometer can be written as 1 km.

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 a combination of both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs.
