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.
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
