Speed in **metres per second (m/s, m s ^{-1})**

**:**

Result in **kilometres per hour (km/h, km h ^{-1}):**

## How to convert speed from metres per second to speed in kilometres per hour?

*1 m/s = 3.6 km/h*

*Kilometres per hour (UK) = km/h = km h ^{-1} = km•h^{-1 }= kilometers per hour (US) = kph*

*Metres per second (UK) = m/s = m s ^{-1} = m•s^{-1 }= meters per second (US) = mps *

Speed in kilometres per hour is equal to speed in metres per second multiply by 3.6.

Formulas:

*kilometres per hour = metres per second x 3.6*

**(km/h) = (m/s) x 3.6**

*km**•**h ^{-1} = m•s^{-1} x 3.6*

*υ _{km/h} = υ_{m/s} x 3.6*

* υ_{km/h }– *speed in kilometres per hour;

* υ_{m/s}* – speed in metres per second.

For example:

*Convert speed 10 m/s to km/h.*

Solution: *υ _{km/h} = υ_{m/s} x 3.6* = 10 x 3.6 = 36 km/h. Answer: 10 m/s = 36 km/h

*Convert speed 20 m/s to km/h.*

Solution: *υ _{km/h} = υ_{m/s} x 3.6* = 20 x 3.6 = 72 km/h. Answer: 20 m/s = 72 km/h

*Convert speed 5 m/s to km/h.*

Solution: *υ _{km/h} = υ_{m/s} x 3.6* = 5 x 3.6 = 18 km/h. Answer: 5 m/s = 18 km/h
