## How to Convert Kilometers per Hour to Centimeters per Second

To convert a measurement in kilometers per hour to a measurement in centimeters per second, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 27.777778 centimeters per second/kilometer per hour.

Since one kilometer per hour is equal to 27.777778 centimeters per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in centimeters per second is equal to the speed in kilometers per hour multiplied by 27.777778.

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

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

## What Are Kilometers per Hour?

Kilometers per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled in kilometers in one hour.

The kilometer per hour, or kilometre per hour, is an SI unit of speed in the metric system. Kilometers per hour can be abbreviated as *km/h*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *kph*. For example, 1 kilometer per hour can be written as 1 km/h or 1 kph.

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, km/h is expressing a change in length or distance relative to a change in time.

Kilometers per hour can be expressed using the formula:

v_{km/h} = d_{km} / t_{hr}

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

## 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:

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.
