## 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 18 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 18 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

18 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 18 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 5.000000000004 m/s

The final result is:

18 km/h → 5.000000000004 m/s

We conclude that 18 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 5.000000000004 meters per second:

18 kilometers per hour = 5.000000000004 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 0.19999999999984 × 18 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 18 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.19999999999984 meters per second.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that eighteen kilometers per hour is approximately five meters per second:

18 km/h ≅ 5 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point two times eighteen kilometers per hour.
