## How to Convert Centimeters Per Second to Meters Per Second

To convert a centimeter per second measurement to a meter per second measurement, divide the speed by the conversion ratio. One meter per second is equal to 100 centimeters per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in meters per second is equal to the centimeters per second divided by 100.

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

Centimeters per second and meters 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.

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.

## Meters Per Second

Meters per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in meters in one second.

The meter per second, or metre per second, is the SI derived unit for speed in the metric system. Meters per second can be abbreviated as *m/s*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *m/sec*. For example, 1 meter per second can be written as 1 m/s or 1 m/sec.

Meters per second can be expressed using the formula:

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

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