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

The formula for converting kilometers per second to kilometers per hour is: km/h = km/s × 3600. To calculate the kilometer per second value in kilometers per hour first substitute the kilometer per second value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilometer per second in kilometers per hour we follow these steps:

km/h = km/s × 3600

km/h = 1 × 3600

km/h = 3600

In other words, 1 kilometer per second is equal to 3600 kilometers per hour.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 8 kilometers per second to kilometers per hour is:

- Understand the conversion formula: km/h = km/s × 3600
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 8 for km/s so the formula becomes: km/h = 8 × 3600
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 8 × 3600 = 28800 km/h

In summary, 8 kilometers per second is equal to 28800 kilometers per hour.

## Converting kilometers per hour to kilometers per second

In order to convert the other way around i.e. kilometers per hour to kilometers per second, you would use the following formula: km/s = km/h × 0.000277777777777778. To convert kilometers per hour to kilometers per second first substitute the kilometer per hour value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilometer per hour in kilometers per second we follow these steps:

km/s = km/h × 0.000277777777777778

km/s = 1 × 0.000277777777777778

km/s = 0.000277777777777778

Or in other words, 1 kilometer per hour is equal to 0.000277777777777778 kilometers per second.
