How to Convert Kilometers Per Second to Speed Of Light

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

Convert kilometers per second to speed of light with this simple formula:

speed of light = kilometers per second × 3.3356E-6

Converting a kilometer per second speed measurement to a speed of light measurement involves multiplying the speed by the conversion ratio to find the result. One kilometer per second is equal to 3.3356E-6 speed of light, so to convert simply multiply by 3.3356E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilometers per second to speed of light using the formula above.
5 km/s = (5 × 3.3356E-6) = 1.6678E-5 speed of light
