How to Convert Square Kilometers to Square Centimeters

Calculators can be used to convert measurements from one unit to another

To convert a square kilometer measurement to a square centimeter measurement, multiply the area by the conversion ratio. One square kilometer is equal to 10,000,000,000 square centimeters, so use this simple formula to convert:

square centimeters = square kilometers × 10,000,000,000

The area in square centimeters is equal to the square kilometers multiplied by 10,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 square kilometers to square centimeters using the formula above.
5 sq km = (5 × 10,000,000,000) = 50,000,000,000 sq cm
