## 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 538 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 538 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

538 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 538 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 149.44444444456 m/s

The final result is:

538 km/h → 149.44444444456 m/s

We conclude that 538 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 149.44444444456 meters per second:

538 kilometers per hour = 149.44444444456 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 0.006691449814121 × 538 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 538 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.006691449814121 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 thirty-eight kilometers per hour is approximately one hundred forty-nine point four four four meters per second:

538 km/h ≅ 149.444 m/s

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