## How to Convert Feet Per Second to Centimeters Per Second

To convert a foot per second measurement to a centimeter per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One foot per second is equal to 30.48 centimeters per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in centimeters per second is equal to the 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.

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

## 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 formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.^{[1]}

Feet per second can be expressed using the formula:

v_{ft/s} = d_{ft}t_{sec}

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

## 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:

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.
