## 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 120 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 120 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

120 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 120 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 33.33333333336 m/s

The final result is:

120 km/h → 33.33333333336 m/s

We conclude that 120 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 33.33333333336 meters per second:

120 kilometers per hour = 33.33333333336 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 0.029999999999976 × 120 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 120 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.029999999999976 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 twenty kilometers per hour is approximately thirty-three point three three three meters per second:

120 km/h ≅ 33.333 m/s

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