How to Convert Centimeters Per Second to Meters Per Second

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

To convert a centimeter per second measurement to a meter per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One centimeter per second is equal to 0.01 meters per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

meters per second = centimeters per second × 0.01

The speed in meters per second is equal to the centimeters per second multiplied by 0.01.

For example, here's how to convert 5 centimeters per second to meters per second using the formula above.
5 cm/s = (5 × 0.01) = 0.05 m/s

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.

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.

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:
vm/s = dmtsec

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