# How Many Meters Are In A Kilometer: m to km and km to m Conversion

Meters (m) and kilometers (km) are directly related units of length and it is very easy to convert meters to kilometers and vice versa.

In order to convert meters to kilometers and kilometers to meters, feel free to use our conversion chart, conversion calculator, but also, learn the relationship between these units.

Just be aware that the "kilo" is one of the official unit prefixes in the International System (SI) of Units and means one thousand (1000 = 10^{3}).

## Meters to Kilometers (m to km) and Kilometers to Meters (km to m) Conversion Formulas

Both meters and kilometers are units of length, with the following relation between them:

**1 kilometer = 1000 meters **

**1 meter = 1/1000 kilometers = 0.001 kilometers**

Again, the "kilo" is one of the official unit prefixes in the International System (SI) of Units and means one thousand (1000 = 10^{3}) - so, one kilo-meter (kilometer, km) has 1000 meters (10^{3} meters).

Thus, in order to convert the length given in meters into the length given in kilometers and vice versa, be sure to remember the following formulas:

**L _{km} = L_{meters} / 1000**

**L _{meters} = L_{km} * 1000**

## Meters to Kilometers (m to km) and Kilometers to Meters (km to m) Conversion Examples

Using conversion formulas, it is fairly easy to convert meters to kilometers and vice versa:

### 500 meters to kilometers:

**L _{km} = 500 meters / 1000 = 0.5 km**

### 3.675 kilometers to meters:

**L _{meters} = 3.675 km * 1000 = 3675 meters**

etc.
