# How to convert kilometers per hour to meters per second?

Kilometers per hour can be easily converted into meters per second by using a conversion factor.

## Answer: To convert kilometers per hour to meters per second, we multiply the given value by 5/18

Let us see how we arrived at this conversion factor.

**Explanation:**

We know that 1 kilometer = 1000 meters and 1 hour = 60 minutes = 3600 seconds

1 km/hour = 1000 m /3600 s = 5/18

Example: Convert 36 km/h to m/s

36 × (5/18) = 10 m/s

### Hence, to convert kilometers per hour to meters per second, we multiply the given value by 5/18
