# How do I convert m/s to km or km/h?

## is there a video that makes it easy to learn or can someone please explain

There are two ways of how you can do it.
See below.

#### Explanation:

1. The longer one
For example, lets convert 1,36 $\frac{m}{s}$ to $k \frac{m}{h}$. Folow my steps from 1 to 3.

Here is the video with an explanation, NOTE: start form 7:00

2. The shorter one
If you want to convert 4,89 $k \frac{m}{h}$ to $\frac{m}{s}$ you have to divide 4,89 with 3,6.
$\frac{4.89}{3.6}$=1,36
And if you want to convert 1,36 $\frac{m}{s}$ to $k \frac{m}{h}$ you have to multiply 1,36 with 3,6.
$1.36 \cdot 3.6 = 4 , 89$

#### Explanation:

There would be no way to convert m/s to km. You would need to end up with units of $\text{distance/time}$. However conversion from m/s to km/h can be done and you already have 2 answers to help you do that. I decided to add my thoughts on unit conversion.

The KhanAcademy video one of your previous answers included is good. I decided to add my thoughts on unit conversion. You might get some additional help from the above link to an answer I wrote about 6 months ago to a Socratic question on this topic.
