Kilometers Per Second to Centimeters Per Second Conversion
Enter the speed in kilometers per second below to get the value converted to centimeters per second.
How to Convert Kilometers Per Second to Centimeters Per Second
To convert a kilometer per second measurement to a centimeter per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio.
Since one kilometer per second is equal to 100,000 centimeters per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The speed in centimeters per second is equal to the kilometers per second multiplied by 100,000.
Kilometers per second and centimeters per second are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
The kilometer per second, or kilometre per second, is an SI unit of speed in the metric system. Kilometers per second can be abbreviated as km/s, and are also sometimes abbreviated as km/sec. For example, 1 kilometer per second can be written as 1 km/s or 1 km/sec.
In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.
Kilometers per second can be expressed using the formula:
vkm/s = dkm / tsec
The velocity in kilometers per second is equal to the distance in kilometers divided by time in seconds.
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.
