 Kilometers to miles, feet, yard, inches.
 Kilometers to meters, centimeters, and millimeters.
Keep reading and find out everyday conversions you might consider helpful, like how many kilometers are in a mile or how many meters are in a kilometer.
What is a kilometer?
A kilometer is a distance unit that is part of the metric measurement system that represents a thousand meters:
$\footnotesize \rm {1km = 1,000 \ meters}$
Therefore, from the length converter calculator, we get the following conversion factors:
$\footnotesize \rm {1km = 100,000 \ cm}$
$\footnotesize \rm {1 km = 1,000,000 \ mm }$
But what if we need to convert miles to kilometers?
Then we can use the following conversion factor:
$\footnotesize \rm { 1 mile = 1.6093 \ km}$
Besides, for taking the other way around, now divide one by 1.6093. If you want to convert kilometers to miles, you use:
$\footnotesize \rm { 1 km = 0.6214 \ miles}$
Furthermore, you can use the imperial conversions to get yourself around feet, yards, and inches:
$\footnotesize \rm { 1 mile = 1760 \ yards}$
$\footnotesize \rm {1 mile = 5280 \ feet }$
$\footnotesize \rm {1 mile = 63360 \ inches }$
Don't worry about memorizing these conversion factors; that is why we created the fantastic kilometer calculator for you.
How to use our kilometer calculator?
You can use our kilometer calculator in two ways:
 Type the kilometer value you want to convert and see how our tool provides its equivalent in 7 different units.
 Type the unit you have. It can be mm, miles, yard, among others, and our tool will indicate its value in kilometers.
Let's see an example inbetween values of the metric measurement system: How many meters are in 1.92 kilometers? Also, let's express the result in yards.

We will use the conversion factor: $\footnotesize \rm { 1 \ km = 1,000 \ meters }$
$\footnotesize \rm {1.92 \ km = 1920 \ m}$

For yards, we will use two conversion factors: $\footnotesize \rm {1 \ km = 0.6214 \ miles}$ and $\footnotesize \rm {1 \ mile = 1760 \ yards}$; therefore, we have:
How many kilometers are in a mile?
1.6093 kilometers. You can also calculate it this way:
 Remember 1609.3 meters build a mile.
 Divide 1609.3 meters by the conversion factor for meters to kilometers.
 The result is the equivalent of a mile expressed in kilometers.
What is 100 kilometers in miles?
61.14 miles. You can follow the next steps for obtaining the same value:
 Note the conversion factor from kilometers to miles: 1.6093 miles equals one kilometer.
 Divide 100 kilometers by the conversion factor: 100 / 1.6093.
 The result is your kilometers value expressed in miles: 61.14 miles.
