Need to change from kilometres per hour to metres per second? You can do it easily and accurately right here! Try out our speed converters for calculations.

As two different units of speed, **metres per second** and **kilometres per hour** are used for different contexts. Used more conventionally,** km/h** can be visibily seen on road signs for car speeds whereas** m/s** is a measurement of slower speeds. Both these measurements can be squared to become units of velocity, however, it is more common for this to happen with metres per second. Above you will find our **km/h to m/s conversion tool**, along with many more speed converters.

## How to use the Converter from km/h to m/s?

Simple to use, our **kilometres per hour – metres per second converter** will help with your calculations. Enter the amount of km/h you need to change and click “convert” to be given the equivalent in m/s. To calculate the other way, convert metres per second to kilometres per hour.

## Formula to Convert km/h – m/s

In mathematical terms, the equation for this speed conversion is shown below should you wish to do it by hand, or if you would like to know how it’s done. As some examples, 22 km/h = 6.11 m/S and 60 km/h = 16.67 m/s

**[number of] kilometres per hour / 3.6 = [number of] metres per second**

## When to use km/h?

**Kilometres per hour** is the most common unit of speed. It is spelt as kilometers per hour in American English and is used worldwide. This unit is found on road signs and in car speedometers with several different abbreviations such as km/h, the official one, kph, kmph and km/hr. Use our **km/h to m/s speed converter** above.

## When to use m/s

As a unit of speed used to measure slower speeds, **metres per second** are used less commonly in everyday situations. Metres per second are defined by the amount of distance travelled in metres, divided by the time it took in seconds. The most common industry to use m/s is in astronomy, however, sometimes m/s is still too slow so km/s is used. View our **km/h to m/s calculator**.
