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 947 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 947 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

947 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 947 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 263.05555555577 m/s

The final result is:

947 km/h → 263.05555555577 m/s

We conclude that 947 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 263.05555555577 meters per second:

947 kilometers per hour = 263.05555555577 meters per second
