# 500 meters in centimeters

## Conversion

500 meters is equivalent to 50000 centimeters.[1]

## Conversion formula How to convert 500 meters to centimeters?

We know (by definition) that: $1\mathrm{m}=100\mathrm{cm}$

We can set up a proportion to solve for the number of centimeters.

$1 ⁢ m 500 ⁢ m = 100 ⁢ cm x ⁢ cm$

Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{cm}=\frac{500\mathrm{m}}{1\mathrm{m}}*100\mathrm{cm}\to x\mathrm{cm}=50000\mathrm{cm}$

Conclusion: $500 ⁢ m = 50000 ⁢ cm$

## Conversion in the opposite direction

The inverse of the conversion factor is that 1 centimeter is equal to 2e-05 times 500 meters.

It can also be expressed as: 500 meters is equal to $\frac{1}{\mathrm{2e-05}}$ centimeters.

## Approximation

An approximate numerical result would be: five hundred meters is about fifty thousand centimeters, or alternatively, a centimeter is about zero times five hundred meters.
