How to Convert Centimeters Per Second to Kilometers Per Second

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

To convert a centimeter per second measurement to a kilometer per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One centimeter per second is equal to 1.0E-5 kilometers per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilometers per second = centimeters per second × 1.0E-5

The speed in kilometers per second is equal to the centimeters per second multiplied by 1.0E-5.

For example, here's how to convert 5 centimeters per second to kilometers per second using the formula above.
5 cm/s = (5 × 1.0E-5) = 5.0E-5 km/s

Centimeters per second and kilometers per second 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 travelled 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.

Centimeters per second can be expressed using the formula:
vm/s = dcmtsec

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

Kilometers Per Second

Kilometers per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in kilometers in one second.

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

Kilometers per second can be expressed using the formula:
vkm/s = dkmtsec

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