## What is the Formula to convert Centimeters to Kilometers?

The formula to convert given length from Centimeters to Kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Centimeters)} / 100000

Substitute the given value of length in centimeters, i.e., Length_{(Centimeters)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the length in kilometers, i.e., Length_{(Kilometers)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a high-end smartphone has a screen size of 15 centimeters.

Convert this screen size from centimeters to Kilometers.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in centimeters is:

Length_{(Centimeters)} = 15

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from centimeters to kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Centimeters)} / 100000

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Centimeters)} = 15** in the above formula.

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 15 / 100000

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 0.00015

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **15 cm** is equal to **0.00015 km**.

The length is **0.00015 km**, in kilometers.

### Consider that a luxury handbag measures 30 centimeters in width.

Convert this width from centimeters to Kilometers.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in centimeters is:

Length_{(Centimeters)} = 30

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from centimeters to kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Centimeters)} / 100000

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Centimeters)} = 30** in the above formula.

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 30 / 100000

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 0.0003

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **30 cm** is equal to **0.0003 km**.

The length is **0.0003 km**, in kilometers.

## Centimeters

A centimeter (cm) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). One centimeter is equivalent to 0.01 meters or approximately 0.3937 inches.

The centimeter is defined as one-hundredth of a meter, making it a convenient measurement for smaller lengths.

Centimeters are used worldwide to measure length and distance in various fields, including science, engineering, and everyday life. They are commonly used in everyday measurements, such as height, width, and depth of objects, as well as in educational settings.

## Kilometers

A kilometer (km) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI), equal to 0.6214 miles. One kilometer is one thousand meters.

The prefix "kilo-" means one thousand. A kilometer is defined by 1000 times the distance light travels in 1/299,792,458 seconds. This definition may change, but a kilometer will always be one thousand meters.

Kilometers are used to measure distances on land in most countries. However, the United States and the United Kingdom still often use miles. The UK has adopted the metric system, but miles are still used on road signs.

## Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

### 1. How do I convert centimeters to kilometers?

To convert centimeters to kilometers, divide the number of centimeters by 100,000, since there are 100,000 centimeters in a kilometer. For example, 250,000 centimeters divided by 100,000 equals 2.5 kilometers.

### 2. What is the formula for converting centimeters to kilometers?

The formula is: \( \text{kilometers} = \dfrac{\text{centimeters}}{100,000} \).

### 3. How many kilometers are in a centimeter?

There are 0.00001 kilometers in one centimeter.

### 4. Is 100,000 centimeters equal to 1 kilometer?

Yes, 100,000 centimeters is exactly equal to 1 kilometer.

### 5. How do I convert kilometers to centimeters?

To convert kilometers to centimeters, multiply the number of kilometers by 100,000. For example, 3 kilometers multiplied by 100,000 equals 300,000 centimeters.

### 6. Why do we divide by 100,000 to convert centimeters to kilometers?

Because there are 100 centimeters in a meter and 1,000 meters in a kilometer. Multiplying 100 Γ 1,000 gives 100,000 centimeters in a kilometer.

### 7. How many kilometers are there in 750,000 centimeters?

Divide 750,000 centimeters by 100,000 to get 7.5 kilometers.

### 8. How to convert 1,200,000 centimeters to kilometers?

Divide 1,200,000 centimeters by 100,000 to get 12 kilometers.
