## How to Convert Centimeters Per Second to Miles Per Hour

To convert a centimeter per second measurement to a mile per hour measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One centimeter per second is equal to 0.022369 miles per hour, so use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in miles per hour is equal to the centimeters per second multiplied by 0.022369.

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

Centimeters per second and miles per hour 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:

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.

## Miles Per Hour

Miles per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in miles in one hour.

The mile per hour is a US customary and imperial unit of speed. Miles per hour can be abbreviated as *mph*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *mi/h* or *MPH*. For example, 1 mile per hour can be written as 1 mph, 1 mi/h, or 1 MPH.

Miles per hour can be expressed using the formula:

v_{mph} = d_{mi}t_{hr}

The velocity in miles per hour is equal to the distance in miles divided by time in hours.

## Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!

There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!

## Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

### Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

- “kilo” – 1,000x larger
- “hecto” – 100x larger
- “deca” – 10x larger
- “deci” – 10x smaller
- “centi” – 100x smaller
- “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”

The u in Until refers to the base unit.
