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

The formula for converting meters per second to meters per hour is: m/h = m/s × 3600. To calculate the meter per second value in meters per hour 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 meters per hour we follow these steps:

m/h = m/s × 3600

m/h = 1 × 3600

m/h = 3600

In other words, 1 meter per second is equal to 3600 meters per hour.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 6 meters per second to meters per hour is:

1. Understand the conversion formula: m/h = m/s × 3600
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 6 for m/s so the formula becomes: m/h = 6 × 3600
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 6 × 3600 = 21600 m/h

In summary, 6 meters per second is equal to 21600 meters per hour.

## Converting meters per hour to meters per second

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

m/s = m/h × 0.000277777777777778

m/s = 1 × 0.000277777777777778

m/s = 0.000277777777777778

Or in other words, 1 meter per hour is equal to 0.000277777777777778 meters per second.

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### What is a Meter Per Second?

Meters per second is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in seconds. It is a fundamental unit of speed in the International System of Units (SI).
To provide an example, let's consider a runner who covers a distance of 100 meters in 10 seconds. The average speed of the runner can be calculated by dividing the distance by the time: 100 meters / 10 seconds = 10 meters per second. This means that the runner is covering a distance of 10 meters every second.
Meters per second is a widely used unit to measure the speed of various objects and phenomena. It is commonly employed in everyday situations, such as measuring the speed of a car, the velocity of an athlete, or the flow rate of a fluid.
In scientific and engineering contexts, meters per second is also used to describe the speed of particles, the movement of waves, and the velocity of projectiles, among other applications.
It's worth noting that meters per second can be converted to other units of speed, such as kilometers per hour or miles per hour, by using appropriate conversion factors.
In summary, meters per second is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in seconds. It is commonly used to measure the speed of objects and phenomena in various fields, and it provides a straightforward and standardized measure of velocity.

### What is a Meter Per Hour?

Meter per hour is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in hours. It is derived from the fundamental unit of length, the meter, and the unit of time, the hour.
To provide an example, let's consider a car traveling at a speed of 60 meters per hour. This means that for every hour, the car covers a distance of 60 meters. If we extend this example, after 2 hours of continuous travel at this speed, the car would have traveled a total distance of 120 meters.
Meter per hour is not as commonly used as other units of speed, such as meters per second or kilometers per hour, as it represents a relatively slower rate of movement. However, it can find applications in certain scenarios where slower speeds are relevant, such as the movement of heavy machinery or the flow rate of fluids in specific industrial processes.
It's important to note that meter per hour can be converted to other units of speed, such as meters per second or kilometers per hour, using appropriate conversion factors. For example, 1 meter per hour is equivalent to 0.00028 meters per second or approximately 0.001 kilometers per hour.
In summary, meter per hour is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in hours. While not as commonly used as some other speed units, it can be applicable in situations where slower rates of movement are considered.
