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 253 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 253 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

253 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 253 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 70.277777777834 m/s

The final result is:

253 km/h → 70.277777777834 m/s

We conclude that 253 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 70.277777777834 meters per second:

253 kilometers per hour = 70.277777777834 meters per second

Alternative conversion
