What is Kilometre?

In the International System of Units (SI), kilometre is a unit of length that is equal to 1000 metres. It is denoted as ‘km.’

Common Usage:

  • Used to measure the distance from one city to another city.
  • Used to measure the distance of a runway.
  • Used to measure the distance covered by a person in a marathon.

How to convert Centimetre to Kilometre?

To convert centimetre to kilometre, multiply the given centimetre by 0.00001 (that is, 1e-5) to get the value in kilometre.

The formula to convert centimetre to kilometre is given below:
X cm = X × 0.00001km
where X is the value in centimetres.

Examples of the conversion of Centimetre to Kilometre

Problem 1: Convert 30 centimetres to kilometres.
Solution 1:

Step 1: The given value is 30 centimetres.
Step 2: To convert centimetres to kilometres, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X cm = X × 0.00001 km
Hence,
30 cm = 30 × 0.00001km
= 0.0003 km
Therefore, 30 centimetres is 0.0003 kilometres.

Problem 2: Convert 10.5 centimetres to kilometres.
Solution 2:

Step 1: The given value is 10.5 centimetres.
Step 2: To convert centimetres to kilometres, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X cm = X ×0.00001 km
Hence,
10.5 cm = 10.5 ×0.00001 km
= 0.000105 km
Therefore, 10.5 centimetres is 0.000105 kilometres.

Problem 3: Convert 450 centimetres to kilometres.
Solution 3:

Step 1: The given value is 450 centimetres.
Step 2: To convert centimetres to kilometres, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X cm = X × 0.00001km
Hence,
450 cm = 450 ×0.00001 km
= 0.0045 km
Therefore, 450 centimetres is 0.0045 kilometres.

Problem 4: Convert 3000 centimetres to kilometres.
Solution 4:

Step 1: The given value is 3000 centimetres.
Step 2: To convert centimetres to kilometres, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X cm = X ×0.00001 km
Hence,
3000 cm = 3000 ×0.00001 km
= 0.03 km
Therefore, 3000 centimetres is 0.03 kilometres.

Problem 5: Convert 5000 centimetres to kilometres.
Solution 5:

Step 1: The given value is 5000 centimetres.
Step 2: To convert centimetres to kilometres, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X cm = X ×0.00001 km
Hence,
5000 cm = 5000 × 0.00001km
= 0.05 km
Therefore, 5000 centimetres is 0.05 kilometres.

Problem 6: Convert 8 cm to km.
Solution 6:
Step 1: The given value is 8 centimetres.
Step 2: To convert centimetres to kilometres, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X cm = X ×0.00001 km
Hence,
8 cm = 8 × 0.00001km
= 8e-5 km
Therefore, 8 centimetres is 8e-5 kilometres.
