Kilometer (abbreviation: km): is a unit of length in the SI metric system, equal to one thousand metres (kilo- being the prefix for 1000). It is now the measurement unit used officially for expressing distances between geographical places on land in most of the world countries.

Meter (abbreviation: m): is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). The metre is the length of the path travelled by light in a vacuum within 1/299792458 seconds.


How to Convert Kilometers to Meters

Example: How many meters are equivalent to 15.82 kilometers?


As;

1 kilometers = 1000 meters

15.82 kilometers = Y meters

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 15.82 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 15.82 * 1000 / 1 = 15820 meters

Answer is: 15820 meters are equivalent to 15.82 kilometers.
