## How to Convert Meters per Second to Centimeters per Second

To convert a measurement in meters per second to a measurement in centimeters per second, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 100 centimeters per second/meter per second.

Since one meter per second is equal to 100 centimeters per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in centimeters per second is equal to the speed in meters per second multiplied by 100.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 meters per second to centimeters per second using the formula above.

Meters 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 Meters per Second?

Meters per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled in meters in one second.

The meter per second, or metre per second, is the SI derived unit for speed in the metric system. Meters per second can be abbreviated as *m/s*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *m/sec*. For example, 1 meter per second can be written as 1 m/s or 1 m/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.^{[1]} For example, m/s is expressing a change in length or distance relative to a change in time.

Meters per second can be expressed using the formula:

v_{m/s} = d_{m} / t_{sec}

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

## What Are Centimeters per Second?

Centimeters per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled 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:

v_{m/s} = d_{cm} / t_{sec}

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