Online calculators to convert meters per second to kilometers per second (m/s to km/s) and kilometers per second to meters per second (km/s to m/s) with formulas, examples, and tables. Our conversions provide a quick and easy way to convert between Speed units.
Enter your value in one of the conversion calculators below to convert m/s to km/s or convert km/s to m/s.
Let's take a closer look at the conversion formulas so that you can do these conversions yourself with a calculator or with an old-fashioned pencil and paper.
The formula to convert from m/s to km/s is:
km/s = m/s x 0.001
The formula to convert from km/s to m/s is:
m/s = km/s x 1,000
Next, let's look at some examples showing the work and calculations that are involved in converting from meters per second to kilometers per second (m/s to km/s) or converting from kilometers per second to meters per second (km/s to m/s).
Task: Convert 450 m/s to km/s (show work) Formula: m/s x 0.001 = km/s Calculations: 450 m/s x 0.001 = 0.45 km/s Result: 450 m/s is equal to 0.45 km/s
Task: Convert 35 km/s to m/s (show work) Formula: km/s x 1,000 = m/s Calculations: 35 km/s x 1,000 = 35,000 m/s Result: 35 km/s is equal to 35,000 m/s
For quick reference purposes, below are conversion tables that you can use to convert from m/s to km/s, and km/s to m/s.

The following is a list of definitions relating to conversions between meters per second and kilometers per second.
Meters per second is a unit of speed in the Metric System. It measures the number of meters travelled in a second. The symbol for meters per second is m/s and the International spelling is metres per second.
Kilometers per second is a unit of speed in the Metric System. It measures the number of kilometers travelled in a second. The symbol for kilometers per second is km/s and the International spelling is kilometres per second.
This table provides a summary of the Speed units within their respective measurement systems.
|inches per second||in/s||US Customary Units/Imperial System|
|feet per second||ft/s||US Customary Units/Imperial System||1 ft/s = 12 in/s|
|yards per second||yd/s||US Customary Units/Imperial System||1 yd/s = 3 ft/s|
|miles per second||mi/s||US Customary Units/Imperial System||1 mi/s = 1760 yd/s
1 mi/s = 5280 ft/s
|millimeters per second||mm/s||Metric System||1000 mm/s = 1 m/s|
|centimeters per second||cm/s||Metric System||100 cm/s = 1 m/s
1 cm/s = 10 mm/s
|decimeters per second||dm/s||Metric System||10 dm/s = 1 m/s
1 dm/s = 10 cm/s
|meters per second||m/s||Metric System||1 m/s = 1000 mm/s
1 m/s = 100 cm/s
1 m/s = 10 dm/s
