In this example, we’ll learn to convert kilometers to miles and display it.
Example: Kilometers to Miles
# Taking kilometers input from the user kilometers = float(input("Enter value in kilometers: ")) # conversion factor conv_fac = 0.621371 # calculate miles miles = kilometers * conv_fac print('%0.2f kilometers is equal to %0.2f miles' %(kilometers,miles))
Enter value in kilometers: 3.5 3.50 kilometers is equal to 2.17 miles
Here, the user is asked to enter kilometers. This value is stored in the kilometers variable.
Since 1 kilometer is equal to 0.621371 miles, we can get the equivalent miles by multiplying kilometers with this factor.
Your turn: Modify the above program to convert miles to kilometers using the following formula and run it.
kilometers = miles / conv_fac
