How to Convert Kilometers Per Second to Centimeters Per Second

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

Convert kilometers per second to centimeters per second with this simple formula:

centimeters per second = kilometers per second × 100,000

Converting a kilometer per second speed measurement to a centimeter per second measurement involves multiplying the speed by the conversion ratio to find the result. One kilometer per second is equal to 100,000 centimeters per second, so to convert simply multiply by 100,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilometers per second to centimeters per second using the formula above.
5 km/s = (5 × 100,000) = 500,000 cm/s

Kilometers per second and centimeters per second are both units used to measure speed. Learn more about speed and find more speed measurement conversion calculators. Kilometers per second is a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as km/s, for example 1 km/s. Centimeters per second is a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as cm/s, for example 1 cm/s.
