For example, the height of a person cannot be measured in kilometers since it is too big to measure the shorter height.

### Examples of Converting Kilometers to Centimeters.

Take a glance at the below examples of **km to cm** conversion using a formula,

d (cm) = 0.0065 km x 1,00,000 = 650 cm

d (cm) = 0.960 x 1,00,000 = 96000 cm
