## 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 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.

## Miles Per Hour

Miles per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled in miles in one hour.^{[2]}

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.
