# How do you convert 83 km/h to m/s?

Apr 7, 2016

$83$ km/h is $23.06$ m/s.

#### Explanation:

$83$ kilometers per hour means

$83000$ meters in one hour means

$83000$ meters in $3600$ seconds or

$\frac{83000}{3600}$ meters per second

and as numerator and denominator each are divisible by $200$

$\frac{83000}{3600} = \frac{415 \cancel{83000}}{18 \cancel{3600}} = \frac{415}{18} = 23.06$ meters per second

Note - Hence to convert $k m$/$h r .$ to $m$/$\sec$ just multiply by $\frac{1000}{3600} = \frac{5}{18}$ and from $m$/$\sec$ to $k m$/$h r .$ just multiply by $\frac{18}{5}$.
