## How to convert speed of light to meters per second (c to m/s)

The formula for converting speed of light to meters per second is: m/s = c × 299800000. To calculate the speed of light value in meters per second first substitute the speed of light value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 speed of light in meters per second we follow these steps:

m/s = c × 299800000

m/s = 1 × 299800000

m/s = 299800000

In other words, 1 speed of light is equal to 299800000 meters per second.

## Example Conversion

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

- Understand the conversion formula: m/s = c × 299800000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 7 for c so the formula becomes: m/s = 7 × 299800000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 7 × 299800000 = 2.0986e+9 m/s

In summary, 7 speed of light is equal to 2.0986e+9 meters per second.

## Converting meters per second to speed of light

In order to convert the other way around i.e. meters per second to speed of light, you would use the following formula: c = m/s × 0.00000000333555703802535. To convert meters per second to speed of light 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 speed of light we follow these steps:

c = m/s × 0.00000000333555703802535

c = 1 × 0.00000000333555703802535

c = 0.00000000333555703802535

Or in other words, 1 meter per second is equal to 0.00000000333555703802535 speed of light.
