The given unit is km/hr.

We are required to convert it to m/s.

Step 2: Explanation

SI unit of distance is a meter and of time is second according to the International System of Units.

1km=1000m

1hr=60min

1min=60sec

Therefore 1hr=60×60sec=3600sec

Step 3: Calculation

So 1km/hr=10003600m/s

=518m/s=0.28m/s

So, to convert km/h to m/s we multiply the given number by 518m/s or 0.28m/s.
