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 138 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 138 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

138 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 138 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 38.333333333364 m/s

The final result is:

138 km/h → 38.333333333364 m/s

We conclude that 138 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 38.333333333364 meters per second:

138 kilometers per hour = 38.333333333364 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 0.026086956521718 × 138 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 138 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.026086956521718 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 thirty-eight kilometers per hour is approximately thirty-eight point three three three meters per second:

138 km/h ≅ 38.333 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero two six times one hundred thirty-eight kilometers per hour.
