# Meters to Kilometers Calculator

To measure long distances and **lengths**, we can’t rely on meters or inches. Some units are **based** on these basic units to measure the lengths of large spaces or objects. **One** of those units is kilometers. As both units are **connected**, so we can convert one unit to the other. Don’t you know how to **do** so?

Want to make this **process** automated? You should use the **meters to kilometers** calculator as this tool has been designed for this purpose. This maths calculator can convert your measurement from meters to kilometers within a fraction of a second. You only have to **insert** the measurement and get it converted quickly. Here we will **show** you how this conversion takes place

## What are meters?

It is a base unit of length that is used **particularly** to measure the size of standard or medium-sized lengths. **Meters** are normally used for medium-sized objects like tables, **windows**, and screens. This base unit is used to measure the length of the sides of such objects or **bodies**.

Many **derived** units are based on this particular unit of length. All those units are used **according** to the size of the length or side we want to measure. To **write** a measurement in meters, we have to write “**m**” which is a symbol of meter in Mathematics.

### What are kilometers?

It is a derived unit that has been derived from “**Meters**”. Kilometers are used to measure the length of **distances**, particularly between two points or places that are far **apart** from each other. This unit is used to measure the distance between two states, **cities**, and even countries.

As this unit is not used for **household** measurements, we can only see this unit on **roads**, highways, and other such places. To write the distance between two or more **points** in Kilometers, we have to write “**Km**” just beside the number showing the measurement.

### Meters to kilometers formula

To understand the formula, you **first** need to know the relationship between these units. A Kilometer is a **bigger** unit of meter that is used to measure distance. In Mathematical terms, a meter is the **1000th** part of a kilometer or we can say a kilometer is equal to **1000 meters**.

1 meter = 1/1000 kilometer

## How to convert meters to kilometers?

By using the above relationship, we can convert the measurement from meters to kilometers. Here is the solved example for your understanding.

**Example 1:**

Convert 17890 meters to kilometers.

**Solution:**

As we know,

1 meter = 1/1000 kilometers

So,

17890 m = 17890/1000 km

= 17.89 km
