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 153 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 153 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

153 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 153 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 42.500000000034 m/s

The final result is:

153 km/h → 42.500000000034 m/s

We conclude that 153 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 42.500000000034 meters per second:

153 kilometers per hour = 42.500000000034 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 0.023529411764687 × 153 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 153 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.023529411764687 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 fifty-three kilometers per hour is approximately forty-two point five meters per second:

153 km/h ≅ 42.5 m/s

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