Do you want to convert centimeters per second to feet per second?

## How to Convert Feet per Second to Centimeters per Second

To convert a measurement in feet per second to a measurement in centimeters per second, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 30.48 centimeters per second/foot per second.

Since one foot per second is equal to 30.48 centimeters per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

centimeters per second = feet per second × 30.48

The speed in centimeters per second is equal to the speed in feet per second multiplied by 30.48.

For example, here's how to convert 5 feet per second to centimeters per second using the formula above.
centimeters per second = (5 ft/s × 30.48) = 152.4 cm/s

Feet per second and centimeters per second are both units used to measure speed. Calculate speed in feet per second or centimeters per second using our speed calculator or keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What Are Feet per Second?

Feet per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled in feet in one second.

The foot per second is a US customary and imperial unit of speed. Feet per second can be abbreviated as ft/s, and are also sometimes abbreviated as ft/sec or fps. For example, 1 foot per second can be written as 1 ft/s, 1 ft/sec, or 1 fps.

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, ft/s is expressing a change in length or distance relative to a change in time.

Feet per second can be expressed using the formula:
vft/s = dft / tsec

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

## 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.

Centimeters per second can be expressed using the formula:
vm/s = dcm / tsec

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