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 590 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 590 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

590 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 590 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 163.88888888902 m/s

The final result is:

590 km/h → 163.88888888902 m/s

We conclude that 590 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 163.88888888902 meters per second:

590 kilometers per hour = 163.88888888902 meters per second

Alternative conversion
