## How to Convert Centimeters Per Second to Kilometers Per Hour

To convert a centimeter per second measurement to a kilometer per hour measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One centimeter per second is equal to 0.036 kilometers per hour, so use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in kilometers per hour is equal to the centimeters per second multiplied by 0.036.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 centimeters per second to kilometers per hour using the formula above.

Centimeters per second and kilometers per hour are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Centimeters Per Second

Centimeters per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled in centimeters in one second.

The centimeter per second, or centimetre per second, is an SI unit of speed in the metric system. Centimeters per second can be abbreviated as *cm/s*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *cm/sec*. For example, 1 centimeter per second can be written as 1 cm/s or 1 cm/sec.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.^{[1]}

Centimeters per second can be expressed using the formula:

v_{m/s} = d_{cm}t_{sec}

The velocity in centimeters per second is equal to the distance in centimeters divided by time in seconds.

## Kilometers Per Hour

Kilometers per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled in kilometers in one hour.

The kilometer per hour, or kilometre per hour, is an SI unit of speed in the metric system. Kilometers per hour can be abbreviated as *km/h*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *kph*. For example, 1 kilometer per hour can be written as 1 km/h or 1 kph.

Kilometers per hour can be expressed using the formula:

v_{km/s} = d_{km}t_{hr}

The velocity in kilometers per hour is equal to the distance in kilometers divided by time in hours.
