## 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 159 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 159 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

159 km/h → V_{(m/s)}

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

V_{(m/s)} = 159 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V_{(m/s)} = 44.166666666702 m/s

The final result is:

159 km/h → 44.166666666702 m/s

We conclude that **159 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 44.166666666702 meters per second**:

159 kilometers per hour = 44.166666666702 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 0.022641509433944 × 159 kilometers per hour**.

Another way is saying that *159 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.022641509433944 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-nine kilometers per hour is approximately forty-four point one six seven meters per second**:

159 km/h ≅ 44.167 m/s

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