## What is Mile?

The mile is a unit of distance in the US customary system or the Imperial system, equal to 1,760 yards or 1.6 kilometers. The mile can be abbreviated as "mi", "M", "ml", and "m". To avoid confusion with metric units of the meter (m) and millimeter (ml), “mi” is recommended. Together with kilometers, the mile is a common unit used to show the distances between places and it is widely used in English-speaking countries such as the USA.

Originally, the term “mile” comes from a Roman word “mille passuum”, which means a thousand paces. However, with the development of length measurement, the mile we often mention today is the international mile or statute mile, which has been standardized to reach an agreement worldwide.

## What is kilometer (Kilometre)?

The kilometer is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI), commonly known as the metric system. As its prefix “kilo” indicates, one kilometer equals 1000 meters. The unit is abbreviated as km and with different accents of English, it can be spelled as “kilometer” (American English) or kilometer (British English). This unit of length is often used to show the distance between two places in many countries where the metric system is adopted.

At the present, the unit is defined as the length of the path traveled by light in a vacuum during a time interval of 1/299792458 of a second.

## How many kilometers in a mile?

One mile equals 1.609344 km. How to convert a number of miles to km? Let do the conversion with our miles to km converter and explore steps to convert miles to kilometers below.

## Relationship between kilometers to miles

In the metric system, a kilometer is a unit of distance, whereas a mile is a corresponding unit in the British imperial or US customary systems. These are the two most commonly used units of distance with international recognition, but the kilometer is used by more countries. Some countries that previously used the imperial system have now switched to the metric system but continue to use miles as a unit of distance. The United Kingdom is a good example. Because kilometers and miles are widely used units of distance, we must convert km to miles and vice versa on a regular basis. The relationship between km and miles can be simplified as follows:

1 kilometer equals 0.621371 mile

1 mile equals 1.609344 km

To reduce your memory load, you can remember that 1 km = 0.6 mi, and 1 mi = 1.6 km.

## Differences between kilometers and miles

The similarities and differences between kilometers and miles can be summarized in the following table.

 Criteria Kilometers Miles Definition A kilometer is a unit of length in the metric system defined as the length of the path traveled by light in a vacuum during a time interval of 1/299792458 of a second. A mile is a unit of distance in the US customary system or the Imperial system, equal to 1,760 yards or 1.6 kilometers. Abbreviation km mi, "M", "ml", and "m". Among them, mi is the most common. Usage The kilometer is widely used in all countries adopting the metric system to describe distances except the UK. The mile is mainly used in the USA, Liberia, Myanmar, and such countries like the UK which have switched to the metric but still keep miles to measure distances. Value 1 km = 1.609344 mi 1 mi = 0.621371

## Converting Miles to Kilometers with formulas and examples

You work as a translator, and you find out that all distances in your document measured in miles, but that unit makes no sense to the audience of your translated document. Then, you have to convert all distances in miles to kilometers simply by using this formula:

kilometers = miles × 1.609344

Where, 1 mile = 1.609344

You can round the value to 1.6 to reduce your memory load.
