How to Convert Meters Per Second to Kilometers Per Second

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

To convert a meter per second measurement to a kilometer per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One meter per second is equal to 0.001 kilometers per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilometers per second = meters per second × 0.001

The speed in kilometers per second is equal to the meters per second multiplied by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 meters per second to kilometers per second using the formula above.
5 m/s = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 km/s

Meters per second and kilometers per second 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 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:
vkm/s = dkmtsec

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