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 600 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 600 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

600 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 600 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 166.6666666668 m/s

The final result is:

600 km/h → 166.6666666668 m/s

We conclude that 600 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 166.6666666668 meters per second:

600 kilometers per hour = 166.6666666668 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 0.0059999999999952 × 600 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 600 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0059999999999952 meters per second.

Approximate result

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

600 km/h ≅ 166.667 m/s

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