## How to Convert Meters Per Second to Speed Of Sound

To convert a meter per second measurement to a speed of sound measurement, divide the speed by the conversion ratio. One speed of sound is equal to 343 meters per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in speed of sound is equal to the meters per second divided by 343.

**For example,**here's how to convert 500 meters per second to speed of sound using the formula above.

Meters per second and speed of sound are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Meters Per Second

Meters per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled 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 formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.^{[1]}

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.

## Speed Of Sound

The speed of sound is the distance a sound wave travels through an elastic medium.
The speed of sound through air at 20 °C is equal to 343 meters per second,^{[2]} or roughly 767 miles per hour.

Speed of sound can be abbreviated as *sound*, for example 1 speed of sound can be written as 1 sound.
