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 58.9 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 58.9 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

58.9 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 58.9 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 16.361111111124 m/s

The final result is:

58.9 km/h → 16.361111111124 m/s

We conclude that 58.9 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 16.361111111124 meters per second:

58.9 kilometers per hour = 16.361111111124 meters per second

58.9 kilometers per hour is equal to 16.361 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 0.061120543293669 × 58.9 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 58.9 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.061120543293669 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that fifty-eight point nine kilometers per hour is approximately sixteen point three six one meters per second:

58.9 km/h ≅ 16.361 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero six one times fifty-eight point nine kilometers per hour.
