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 1078 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 1078 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

1078 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 1078 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 299.44444444468 m/s

The final result is:

1078 km/h → 299.44444444468 m/s

We conclude that 1078 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 299.44444444468 meters per second:

1078 kilometers per hour = 299.44444444468 meters per second
