How to Convert Kilometers per Second to Centimeters per Second
To convert a measurement in kilometers per second to a measurement in centimeters per second, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 100,000 centimeters per second/kilometer per second.
Since one kilometer per second is equal to 100,000 centimeters per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:
centimeters per second = kilometers per second × 100,000
The speed in centimeters per second is equal to the speed in 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.
What Are Kilometers per 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.
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. For example, km/s is expressing a change in length or distance relative to a change in time.
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.

What Are Centimeters per 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 = dcm / tsec
The velocity in centimeters per second is equal to the distance in centimeters divided by time in seconds.
