How to Convert Meters Per Second to Kilometers Per Hour

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

To convert a meter per second measurement to a kilometer per hour measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One meter per second is equal to 3.6 kilometers per hour, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilometers per hour = meters per second × 3.6

The speed in kilometers per hour is equal to the meters per second multiplied by 3.6.

For example, here's how to convert 5 meters per second to kilometers per hour using the formula above.
5 m/s = (5 × 3.6) = 18 km/h

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

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:
vm/s = dmtsec

The velocity in meters per second is equal to the distance in meters 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.
