Time from a Distance in Kilometres and Speed in Metres per Second

Calculate the time it takes to ride, walk, swim, or run a certain distance in kilometres based on a speed in metres per second.

Time from Speed and Distance
Metres per Second/Kilometres

Distance in Kilometres km
Speed in Metres per Second m/sec


Distance in Miles mi
Speed in Feet per Second ft/sec
Time in Seconds sec
Time in Decimal Hours hr
Time hour min sec


  1. enter the distance in kilometres
  2. the speed in metres per second


  1. the distance in kilometres converted to miles
  2. the metres per second converted to feet per second
  3. the time in minutes
  4. the time in decimal hours
  5. the time in hour, minute, and second format

time = distance ÷ speed
one kilometre (km) = 0.621371192237334 miles (mi)
one kilometre (km) = 1000 metres (m)
one hour (hr) = 3600 seconds (sec)
one metre per minute (m/sec) =  3.28083989501312 feet per minute (ft/sec)
Example Calculation
How long will it take to run 10 kilometres at a speed of 2 metres per second?
First, convert the 10 kilometres to metres;
10 * 1000  =  10000
10 kilometres equals 10000  metres

Divide the distance of  10000 metres by the speed of 2 metres per second to get the time in seconds;
10000 ÷ 2 =  5000
It will take 5000 seconds to run the 10 kilometres at a speed of 2 metres per second

Convert to decimal hours by dividing by 3600 (there are 3600 seconds in one hour);
5000 ÷ 3600  = 1.38888
It will take 1.38888 hours to run 10 kilometres at a speed of 2 metres per second.
1 hr - 23 min - 20 sec
