## 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 144 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 144 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

144 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 144 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 40.000000000032 m/s

The final result is:

144 km/h → 40.000000000032 m/s

We conclude that 144 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 40.000000000032 meters per second:

144 kilometers per hour = 40.000000000032 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 0.02499999999998 × 144 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 144 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.02499999999998 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-four kilometers per hour is approximately forty meters per second:

144 km/h ≅ 40 m/s

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