## How to Convert Centimeters per Second to Knots

To convert a measurement in centimeters per second to a measurement in knots, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 0.019438 knots/centimeter per second.

Since one centimeter per second is equal to 0.019438 knots, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in knots is equal to the speed in centimeters per second multiplied by 0.019438.

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

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

## What Are 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 the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units.^{[1]} For example, cm/s is expressing a change in length or distance relative to a change in time.

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.
