Conversion formula

The conversion factor from kilometers per hour to meters per second is 0.277777777778, which means that 1 kilometer per hour is equal to 0.277777777778 meters per second:

1 km/h = 0.277777777778 m/s

To convert 100 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 100 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from kilometers per hour to meters per second. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 km/h → 0.277777777778 m/s

100 km/h → V(m/s)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in meters per second:

V(m/s) = 100 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 27.7777777778 m/s

The final result is:

100 km/h → 27.7777777778 m/s

We conclude that 100 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 27.7777777778 meters per second:

100 kilometers per hour = 27.7777777778 meters per second

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter per second is equal to 0.035999999999971 × 100 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 100 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.035999999999971 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred kilometers per hour is approximately twenty-seven point seven seven eight meters per second:

100 km/h ≅ 27.778 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero three six times one hundred kilometers per hour.
