How to Convert Feet Per Second to Kilometers Per Hour

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

To convert a foot per second measurement to a kilometer per hour measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One foot per second is equal to 1.09728 kilometers per hour, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilometers per hour = feet per second × 1.09728

The speed in kilometers per hour is equal to the feet per second multiplied by 1.09728.

For example, here's how to convert 5 feet per second to kilometers per hour using the formula above.
5 ft/s = (5 × 1.09728) = 5.4864 km/h

Feet per second and kilometers per hour are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Feet Per Second

Feet per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in feet in one second.

The foot per second is a US customary and imperial unit of speed. Feet per second can be abbreviated as ft/s, and are also sometimes abbreviated as ft/sec or fps. For example, 1 foot per second can be written as 1 ft/s, 1 ft/sec, or 1 fps.

Feet per second can be expressed using the formula:
vft/s = dfttsec

The velocity in feet per second is equal to the distance in feet divided by time in seconds.

Kilometers Per Hour

Kilometers per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in kilometers in one hour.

The kilometer per hour, or kilometre per hour, is an SI unit of speed in the metric system. Kilometers per hour can be abbreviated as km/h, and are also sometimes abbreviated as kph. For example, 1 kilometer per hour can be written as 1 km/h or 1 kph.

Kilometers per hour can be expressed using the formula:
vkm/s = dkmthr

The velocity in kilometers per hour is equal to the distance in kilometers divided by time in hours.
