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 491 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 491 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

491 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 491 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 136.388888889 m/s

The final result is:

491 km/h → 136.388888889 m/s

We conclude that 491 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 136.388888889 meters per second:

491 kilometers per hour = 136.388888889 meters per second
