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

The formula for converting kilometers per second to meters per second is: m/s = km/s × 1000. To calculate the kilometer per second value in meters per second 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 meters per second we follow these steps:

m/s = km/s × 1000

m/s = 1 × 1000

m/s = 1000

In other words, 1 kilometer per second is equal to 1000 meters per second.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 2 kilometers per second to meters per second is:

- Understand the conversion formula: m/s = km/s × 1000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 2 for km/s so the formula becomes: m/s = 2 × 1000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 2 × 1000 = 2000 m/s

In summary, 2 kilometers per second is equal to 2000 meters per second.

## Converting meters per second to kilometers per second

In order to convert the other way around i.e. meters per second to kilometers per second, you would use the following formula: km/s = m/s × 0.001. To convert meters per second to kilometers per second 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 second we follow these steps:

km/s = m/s × 0.001

k1 = m/s × 0.001

km/s = 0.001

Or in other words, 1 meter per second is equal to 0.001 kilometers per second.
