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 480 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 480 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

480 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 480 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 133.33333333344 m/s

The final result is:

480 km/h → 133.33333333344 m/s

We conclude that 480 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 133.33333333344 meters per second:

480 kilometers per hour = 133.33333333344 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 0.007499999999994 × 480 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 480 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.007499999999994 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that four hundred eighty kilometers per hour is approximately one hundred thirty-three point three three three meters per second:

480 km/h ≅ 133.333 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero seven times four hundred eighty kilometers per hour.
