## How to Convert Centimeters Per Second to Knots

To convert a centimeter per second measurement to a knot measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio.

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 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.

## 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.

## Knots

One knot is equal to a speed of one nautical mile per hour,^{[2]} or one minute of latitude per hour.

Knots can be abbreviated as *kn*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *kt*. For example, 1 knot can be written as 1 kn or 1 kt.
