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 262 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 262 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

262 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 262 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 72.777777777836 m/s

The final result is:

262 km/h → 72.777777777836 m/s

We conclude that 262 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 72.777777777836 meters per second:

262 kilometers per hour = 72.777777777836 meters per second

Alternative conversion
