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

The formula for converting meters per second to kilometers per second is: km/s = m/s × 0.001. To calculate the meter per second value in kilometers per second first substitute the meter per second value into the preceding formula, and then perform 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

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

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 7 meters per second to kilometers per second is:

- Understand the conversion formula: km/s = m/s × 0.001
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 7 for m/s so the formula becomes: k7 = m/s × 0.001
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 7 × 0.001 = 0.007 km/s

In summary, 7 meters per second is equal to 0.007 kilometers per second.

## Converting kilometers per second to meters per second

In order to convert the other way around i.e. kilometers per second to meters per second, you would use the following formula: m/s = km/s × 1000. To convert kilometers per second to meters per second first substitute the kilometer per second value into the above formula, and then execute 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

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