## Convert 17 Kilometers/Hour to Meters/Second

To calculate 17 Kilometers/Hour to the corresponding value in Meters/Second, multiply the quantity in Kilometers/Hour by 0.277777777778 (conversion factor). In this case we should multiply 17 Kilometers/Hour by 0.277777777778 to get the equivalent result in Meters/Second:

17 Kilometers/Hour x 0.277777777778 = 4.722222222226 Meters/Second

**17 Kilometers/Hour is equivalent to 4.722222222226 Meters/Second.**

## Definition of Kilometer/Hour

The kilometre per hour (American English: kilometer per hour) is a unit of speed, expressing the number of kilometres travelled in one hour. The unit symbol is km/h. Worldwide, it is the most commonly used unit of speed on road signs and car speedometers. Although the metre was formally defined in 1799, the term "kilometres per hour" did not come into immediate use – the myriametre (10,000 metres) and myriametre per hour were preferred to kilometres and kilometres per hour.

## Definition of Meter/Second

Metre per second (American English: meter per second) is an SI derived unit of both speed (scalar) and velocity (vector quantity which specifies both magnitude and a specific direction), defined by distance in metres divided by time in seconds. The SI unit symbols are m·s−1, m s−1 or m/s sometimes (unofficially) abbreviated as "mps". Where metres per second are several orders of magnitude too slow to be convenient, such as in astronomical measurements, velocities may be given in kilometres per second, where 1 km/s is 1000 metres per second, sometimes unofficially abbreviated as "kps".
