How to Convert Kilometers Per Hour to Centimeters Per Second

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

To convert a kilometer per hour measurement to a centimeter per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One kilometer per hour is equal to 27.777778 centimeters per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

centimeters per second = kilometers per hour × 27.777778

The speed in centimeters per second is equal to the 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.
5 km/h = (5 × 27.777778) = 138.888889 cm/s

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

Kilometers Per Hour

Kilometers per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled 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.

Kilometers per hour can be expressed using the formula:
vkm/s = dkmthr

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

Centimeters Per Second

Centimeters per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled 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 = dcmtsec

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