Do you want to convert speed of sound to centimeters per second?

## How to Convert Centimeters per Second to Speed of Sound

To convert a measurement in centimeters per second to a measurement in speed of sound, divide the speed by the following conversion ratio: 34,300 centimeters per second/speed of sound.

Since one speed of sound is equal to 34,300 centimeters per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in speed of sound is equal to the speed in centimeters per second divided by 34,300.

**For example,**here's how to convert 50,000 centimeters per second to speed of sound using the formula above.

Centimeters per second and speed of sound are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What Are 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 the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units.^{[1]} For example, cm/s is expressing a change in length or distance relative to a change in time.

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.

## What is the Speed of Sound?

The speed of sound is the distance a sound wave travels through an elastic medium.
The speed of sound through air at 20 °C is equal to 343 meters per second,^{[2]} or roughly 767 miles per hour.

Speed of sound can be abbreviated as *sound*; for example, 1 speed of sound can be written as 1 sound.
