## How to Convert Kilometers Per Second to Meters Per Second

To convert a kilometer per second measurement to a meter per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One kilometer per second is equal to 1,000 meters per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in meters per second is equal to the kilometers per second multiplied by 1,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilometers per second to meters per second using the formula above.

Kilometers per second and meters per second are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Kilometers Per Second

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

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

Kilometers per second can be expressed using the formula:

v_{km/s} = d_{km}t_{sec}

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

## Meters Per Second

Meters per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in meters in one second.

The meter per second, or metre per second, is the SI derived unit for speed in the metric system. Meters per second can be abbreviated as *m/s*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *m/sec*. For example, 1 meter per second can be written as 1 m/s or 1 m/sec.

Meters per second can be expressed using the formula:

v_{m/s} = d_{m}t_{sec}

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