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 512 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 512 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

512 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 512 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 142.22222222234 m/s

The final result is:

512 km/h → 142.22222222234 m/s

We conclude that 512 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 142.22222222234 meters per second:

512 kilometers per hour = 142.22222222234 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 0.0070312499999944 × 512 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 512 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0070312499999944 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that five hundred twelve kilometers per hour is approximately one hundred forty-two point two two two meters per second:

512 km/h ≅ 142.222 m/s

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