Both meters(m) and kilometer(km) are metric units of measurements.

A kilometer is used to measure longer distances compared to meters.

**Formula to convert km to m.**

To convert a km to m we multiply the km by the conversion rate which is 1000.

The 1000 is derived from the relationship between a km a m which states that 1 km is equivalent 1000m.

**Length in m = Length in km x 1000**

**Example: **

Convert 2.5 km to m.

**= 2.5 x 1000**

**= 2,500m**
