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 640 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 640 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

640 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 640 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 177.77777777792 m/s

The final result is:

640 km/h → 177.77777777792 m/s

We conclude that 640 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 177.77777777792 meters per second:

640 kilometers per hour = 177.77777777792 meters per second

640 kilometers per hour is equal to 177.778 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 0.0056249999999955 × 640 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 640 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0056249999999955 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 forty kilometers per hour is approximately one hundred seventy-seven point seven seven eight meters per second:

640 km/h ≅ 177.778 m/s

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