How to convert km/h to m/s squared

  1. Sep 25, 2005 #1
    I guess I'm confused on how to convert km/h to m/s squared.

    I understand 1min/60s=360s/1 hr but this seems different. the seconds squared ared throwing me off. I know there's a 1000 meters in a kilometer and 360 seconds in an hour. I guess I don't know how to apply these numbers. Thanks for your help.

    1hr = 3600s

    The seconds aren't squared

    [tex]
    \frac{km}{hr}*\frac{hr}{3600s}*\frac{1000m}{1km}=\frac{m}{s}
    [/tex]
