Program to convert speed in km/hr to m/sec and vice versa
  • Last Updated : 16 Apr, 2021

Convert speed given in km/hr to m/sec and vice versa .
Examples: 
 

Input : kmph = 72, mps = 10
Output : speed_in_mps = 20
         speed_in_kmph = 36 

Input : kmph = 54, mps = 15
Output : speed_in_mps = 15
         speed_in_kmph = 54 

 

Approach: 
1 km = 1000 m and 1 hr = 3600 sec (60 min x 60 sec each). 
Conversion from Km/h to m/sec- 
When converting km/hr to m/sec, multiply the speed with 1000 and divide the result with 3600. 
 

1 km/hr = 5/18 m/sec or 0.277778 m/sec 

Conversion from m/sec to km/h- 
When Converting m/sec to km/hr, divide the speed with 1000 and multiply the result with 3600. 
 

1 m/sec = 18/5 km/hr or 3.6 km/hr

Below is the program implementation: 
 

C++




// CPP program to convert 
// kmph to mps and vice versa
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// function to convert speed
// in km/hr to m/sec
float kmph_to_mps(float kmph)
{
    return (0.277778 * kmph);
}
 
// function to convert speed
// in m/sec to km/hr
float mps_to_kmph(float mps)
{
    return (3.6 * mps);
}
 
// driver function
int main()
{
    // variable to store
    // speed in kmph
    float kmph = 72.0;
     
    // variable to store
    // speed in mps
    float mps = 10.0;
     
    cout << "speed_in_mps = " << kmph_to_mps(kmph)
         << " speed_in_kmph = " << mps_to_kmph(mps);
          
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to convert
// kmph to mps and vice versa
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG
{
    // function to convert speed
    // in km/hr to m/sec
    static int kmph_to_mps(double kmph)
    {
        return(int) (0.277778 * kmph);
    }
     
    // function to convert speed
    // in m/sec to km/hr
    static int mps_to_kmph(double mps)
    {
        return(int) (3.6 * mps);
    }
     
    // Driver function
    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
        // variable to store
        // speed in kmph
        double kmph = 72.0;
         
        // variable to store
        // speed in mps
        double mps = 10.0;
         
        System.out.println("speed_in_mps = " + kmph_to_mps(kmph)
                          + " speed_in_kmph = " +mps_to_kmph(mps));
     
    }
}
