## 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 596 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 596 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

596 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 596 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 165.55555555569 m/s

The final result is:

596 km/h → 165.55555555569 m/s

We conclude that 596 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 165.55555555569 meters per second:

596 kilometers per hour = 165.55555555569 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 0.006040268456371 × 596 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 596 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.006040268456371 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 ninety-six kilometers per hour is approximately one hundred sixty-five point five five six meters per second:

596 km/h ≅ 165.556 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero six times five hundred ninety-six kilometers per hour.
