How to Convert Kilometers Per Second to Meters Per Second Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

Convert kilometers per second to meters per second with this simple formula:

meters per second = kilometers per second × 1,000

Converting a kilometer per second speed measurement to a meter per second measurement involves multiplying your speed by the conversion ratio to find the result. A kilometer per second is equal to 1,000 meters per second, so to convert simply multiply by 1,000.

For example:
5 km/sec = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 m/sec

Kilometers per second and meters per second are both units used to measure speed. Learn more about speed and find more speed measurement conversion calculators. A kilometer per second is a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as km/sec, for example 1 km/sec. A meter per second is a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as m/sec, for example 1 m/sec.
