## How to convert kilometers per hour to meters per second (km/h to m/s)

The formula for converting kilometers per hour to meters per second is: m/s = km/h × 0.2777777778. To calculate the kilometer per hour value in meters per second first substitute the kilometer per hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilometer per hour in meters per second we follow these steps:

m/s = km/h × 0.2777777778

m/s = 1 × 0.2777777778

m/s = 0.2777777778

In other words, 1 kilometer per hour is equal to 0.2777777778 meters per second.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 3 kilometers per hour to meters per second is:

- Understand the conversion formula: m/s = km/h × 0.2777777778
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 3 for km/h so the formula becomes: m/s = 3 × 0.2777777778
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 3 × 0.2777777778 = 0.8333333334 m/s

In summary, 3 kilometers per hour is equal to 0.8333333334 meters per second.

## Converting meters per second to kilometers per hour

In order to convert the other way around i.e. meters per second to kilometers per hour, you would use the following formula: km/h = m/s × 3.599999999712. To convert meters per second to kilometers per hour first substitute the meter per second value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 meter per second in kilometers per hour we follow these steps:

km/h = m/s × 3.599999999712

km/h = 1 × 3.599999999712

km/h = 3.599999999712

Or in other words, 1 meter per second is equal to 3.599999999712 kilometers per hour.
