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 179 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 179 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

179 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 179 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 49.722222222262 m/s

The final result is:

179 km/h → 49.722222222262 m/s

We conclude that 179 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 49.722222222262 meters per second:

179 kilometers per hour = 49.722222222262 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 0.020111731843559 × 179 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 179 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.020111731843559 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 seventy-nine kilometers per hour is approximately forty-nine point seven two two meters per second:

179 km/h ≅ 49.722 m/s

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