    First multiply by 1000 to turn km into metres.
    Then divide by the number of seconds in 1 hour.

    1km/hour is 1000m/hour, which is 1000m/3600s. So 1km/h = (10/36) m/s.

    Sorry if I had my acceleration in km per hour instead of the standard mertres per hour and needed to convert I would do the same, multiply by 1000 to give me metres per hour per hour then divide by seconds in an hour squared??
