How to Convert Kilometers Per Second to Centimeters Per Second

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

To convert a kilometer per second measurement to a centimeter per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One kilometer per second is equal to 100,000 centimeters per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

centimeters per second = kilometers per second × 100,000

The speed in centimeters per second is equal to the kilometers per second multiplied 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. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Kilometers Per Second

Kilometers per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in kilometers in one second.

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.

Kilometers per second can be expressed using the formula:
vkm/s = dkmtsec

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

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.
