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 142 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 142 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

142 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 142 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 39.444444444476 m/s

The final result is:

142 km/h → 39.444444444476 m/s

We conclude that 142 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 39.444444444476 meters per second:

142 kilometers per hour = 39.444444444476 meters per second

142 kilometers per hour is equal to 39.444 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 0.025352112676036 × 142 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 142 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.025352112676036 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-two kilometers per hour is approximately thirty-nine point four four four meters per second:

142 km/h ≅ 39.444 m/s

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