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 840 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 840 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

840 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 840 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 233.33333333352 m/s

The final result is:

840 km/h → 233.33333333352 m/s

We conclude that 840 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 233.33333333352 meters per second:

840 kilometers per hour = 233.33333333352 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 0.0042857142857109 × 840 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 840 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0042857142857109 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that eight hundred forty kilometers per hour is approximately two hundred thirty-three point three three three meters per second:

840 km/h ≅ 233.333 m/s

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