## 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 979 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 979 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

979 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 979 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 271.94444444466 m/s

The final result is:

979 km/h → 271.94444444466 m/s

We conclude that 979 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 271.94444444466 meters per second:

979 kilometers per hour = 271.94444444466 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 0.0036772216547468 × 979 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 979 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0036772216547468 meters per second.

## Approximate result

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

979 km/h ≅ 271.944 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero four times nine hundred seventy-nine kilometers per hour.
