Python Program to Convert Kilometers to Miles

In this program, you'll learn to convert kilometers to miles and display it.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of following Python programming topics:

Source Code

kilometers = 5.5

# To take kilometers from the user, uncomment the code below
# kilometers = float(input("Enter value in kilometers"))

# conversion factor
conv_fac = 0.621371

# calculate miles
miles = kilometers * conv_fac
print('%0.3f kilometers is equal to %0.3f miles' %(kilometers,miles))


5.500 kilometers is equal to 3.418 miles

Note: To test the program, change the value of kilometers.

Your turn: Modify the above program to convert miles to kilometers using the following formula and run it.

kilometers = miles / conv_fac
