# Conversion from Kilometer (km) to Meter (m) and vice versa

Updated on by Stefan Banse

Here you can convert the Unit of length Kilometer into the unit Meter and vice versa you can convert Meter into Kilometer. By clicking the "Swap units" icon, you will always obtain the desired conversion in the calculation result, i.e., km to m or m to km. With the following calculator you can also calculate any other Unit of length.

The unit kilometer belongs to the metric system and is derived from the basic unit meter. Here, 1 kilometer can be converted into 1,000 meters or 1 meter is equivalent to 0.001 kilometers. The kilometer belongs to the International System of Units (SI).

In most parts of the world today, kilometers is the measuring unit used to express distances between geographical locations in the countryside. The United States and the United Kingdom are exceptions to this practice, where miles are used as a measuring unit.

Meter is a basic unit of length in the International System of Units (SI) and other metric systems. All other units of length in the metric system are derived from the meter (e.g. 1 km = 1.000 m, 1m = 1.000 mm).

The meter was defined in 1799 based on measurements taken at the time as the ten millionth part of the distance from the North Pole to the equator. For this purpose, a so-called prototype meter was casted in platinum. Since 1983, the meter has been defined as the distance travelled by light in 1/299,792,458 seconds in a vacuum.
