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 2.9 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 2.9 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

2.9 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 2.9 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 0.8055555555562 m/s

The final result is:

2.9 km/h → 0.8055555555562 m/s

We conclude that 2.9 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 0.8055555555562 meters per second:

2.9 kilometers per hour = 0.8055555555562 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 1.2413793103438 × 2.9 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 2.9 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 1.2413793103438 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that two point nine kilometers per hour is approximately zero point eight zero six meters per second:

2.9 km/h ≅ 0.806 m/s

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