# Which expression can be used to convert 5 meters per second to kilometers per hour?

Multiply the speed by the conversion ratio to convert a meter per second measurement to a kilometer per hour measurement. The speed in kilometers per hour is calculated by multiplying meters per second by 3.6. For example, using the method above, here's how to convert 5 meters per second to kilometers per hour.

5 m/s × 3.6 = 20.8 km/h

Alternatively, you could divide 5 meters per second by 3.6 and round down to the nearest whole number. Here, we'd get 20 kilometers per hour.

Both calculations give the same result: 20 kilometers per hour.

This formula can also be used to convert kilometers per hour to meters per second. Simply replace all instances of "meters" with "miles". For example, if you wanted to know how fast you were going after driving for a mile at 70 miles per hour, you could use this formula to calculate your speed in meters per second: 70 miles per hour x 3.6 = 223.2 meters per second.

You can multiply any distance by 3.6 to arrive at meters per second. For example, if you wanted to know how fast you were traveling down a road that was five miles long, you could use the formula above to find out your speed in meters per second. The calculation would be 5 miles x 3.6 = 44.8 meters per second.

## How do you convert speed to meters per hour?

How do I convert?

1. To convert from kilometers per hour to meters per hour, multiply the figure by 1,000 (hence the prefix kilo- from the ancient Greek language word for thousand).
2. To convert from meters per second to meters per hour, divide the figure by 3,600 (that is 60 * 60, i.e. 60 seconds for each of the 60 minutes).

## Which number expresses 72 kilometers per hour as meters per hour?

72 kilometers per hour to meters per hour conversion was obtained by multiplying 72 kilometers per hour by 1,000, yielding 72,000 meters per hour. This number can be read as 72 km/hr or 72 miles per hour.

A car traveling at 72 kilometers per hour covers a distance of 2.59 miles per hour. To cover the same distance in a car traveling at 60 kilometers per hour, you would have to travel 3.18 miles per hour. That's more than twice as fast!

Thus the correct answer is 72 kilometers per hour.

## What is the formula for changing kilometres per hour into metres per second?

1 kilometer/hour = 1000 meters / 3600 seconds may alternatively be written as 1 kilometer/hour = 5/18 meters/second. To convert km/h to m/s, multiply the provided speed figure by the proportion 5/18. For example, at 50 km/h (30 miles/hour), you would calculate 0.5 x 5/18 = 0.0833 meters per second.

Kilometers per hour are used to describe the speed of vehicles, while miles per hour are used to describe the speed of people or objects with respect to time. Therefore, only one unit of measurement can be used at a time. You cannot use both kilometers and miles to describe the same thing. For example, you cannot say that John drives at 30 miles per hour because that is too fast for kilometers; rather, you should say that he travels at about 3 kilometers per hour.

To convert kilometers per hour to miles per hour, divide the number of kilometers per hour by 1,609. For example, if your car's cruise control setter reads 110 km/h, then it means that you are traveling at about 5 miles per hour. The calculation is 110 km/h ÷ 1,609 = 6.9 miles per hour.

## How do you convert millimeters per second to kilometers per hour?

1 millimeter per second mm/sec= 0.0036kilometers per hour km/h

## What is one kilometer per hour second?

Kilometres per hour per second [km/(h*s)] is the metric acceleration unit sign. 1 km/h per second is defined as 1000 m / 3600 s2.acceleration equal to a change in velocity of 1 km/h in 1 second. Kilometers per hour per second is a smaller unit than metres per second squared. 1 kilo-meter per hour per second equals 10 meters per second squared.

## How fast is 65 mph in km per kiloseconds?

This 65 miles per hour to kilometers per second conversion was derived by multiplying 65 miles per hour by 0.0004, yielding 0.0290 kilometers per second. Thus, the car is traveling at a rate of 3,090 kilometers per year.

One kilometer per second is equivalent to 1,00,852.50 feet per second or 63,176.58 meters per second. Therefore, the car is traveling at a rate of about 31 miles per hour when it reaches a speed of 65 miles per hour.

In general, miles per hour times seconds equals kilometers per second. For example, 70 miles per hour for one minute will be 140 kilometers per hour.

There are 16 minutes per hour, so that's 280 kilometers per hour for four hours. A mile is 5,280 feet, so that's 170 kilometers per hour for five hours.

A kilometer per second is equal to 1000 meters per second. To convert miles per hour to kilometers per second, you multiply by 0.0006.

Thus, at 75 miles per hour, the car is traveling at a rate of 50,400 meters per second or 180 kilometers per hour. At 85 miles per hour, it's 55,880 meters per second or 200 kilometers per hour.
