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 997 kilometers per hour into meters per second we have to multiply 997 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

997 km/h → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 997 km/h × 0.277777777778 m/s

V(m/s) = 276.94444444467 m/s

The final result is:

997 km/h → 276.94444444467 m/s

We conclude that 997 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 276.94444444467 meters per second:

997 kilometers per hour = 276.94444444467 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 0.0036108324974896 × 997 kilometers per hour.
