## Kilometer (km)

Kilometer (km in short) – is an easy-to-use multiple of a meter – the basic SI unit. Converting a kilometer into meters we get the value of 1000 m. A kilometer is a very frequently used measure of length, especially in relation to road signs. Even in the USA, where a mile has been used for a long time, the signage gradually changes to kilometers.

## Meter (m)

Meter (abbreviated m) – is the basic unit of length in systems such as: SI, MKS, or MTS. The construction of the metro should be connected with the date of March 26, 1791. The length of a meter as the path that light travels in a vacuum during 1/299792458 seconds was established only at the end of the 20th century. From 1795 to 1983, the measure of the meter varied depending on how it was measured.

## Some another km to m converter examples

The kilometers to meters or km to m converter is used to convert metric units. Kilometers and meters are often used to denote length, height, and depth etc. most of the metric units are written in these two metric units.
