How to Convert Meters Per Second to Kilometers Per Second

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

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

kilometers per second = meters per second × 0.001

Converting a meter per second speed measurement to a kilometer per second measurement involves multiplying the speed by the conversion ratio to find the result. One meter per second is equal to 0.001 kilometers per second, so to convert simply multiply by 0.001.

For example:
5 m/s = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 km/s

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