## 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 140 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 140 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

140 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 140 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 38.88888888892 m/s

The final result is:

140 km/h → 38.88888888892 m/s

We conclude that 140 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 38.88888888892 meters per second:

140 kilometers per hour = 38.88888888892 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 0.025714285714265 × 140 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 140 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.025714285714265 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 forty kilometers per hour is approximately thirty-eight point eight eight nine meters per second:

140 km/h ≅ 38.889 m/s

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