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 1426 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 1426 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

1426 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 1426 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 396.11111111143 m/s

The final result is:

1426 km/h → 396.11111111143 m/s

We conclude that 1426 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 396.11111111143 meters per second:

1426 kilometers per hour = 396.11111111143 meters per second

Alternative conversion
