To convert the speed from kilometers per hour (km / h) to meters per second (m / s), you need to use a special algorithm for translation.

- First you need to determine what speed is. Speed is defined as the distance divided by the time for which it is covered. The distance is expressed in kilometers or meters, with 1 km. = 1000 m. And 1 m. = 0.001 km. Time is expressed in hours or seconds, with 1 hour = 60 minutes. = 3600 s. And 1 s. = 1/3600 h. = 0.00028 h.
- To convert kilometers per hour to meters per second, we express the speed indicator in terms of the ratio: 1 km / h = 1000 m / 3600 s = 0.28 m / s.
- Using this formula, we translate, for example, the speed of 38 km / h in m / s: 38 x 0.28 = 10.64 m / s.

We derive a formula for converting meters per second to kilometers per hour: 1 m / s = 0.001 km / 0.00028 h = 3.57 km / h

For example, let's see how 58 m / s translate in km / h: 58 x 3.57 = 207 km / h.

For ease of translation, the Internet offers many converters that allow you to quickly convert one value to another. Just enter the parameters, and the program will give you the result. For example, you can use.
