## How to Convert Miles Per Hour to Centimeters Per Second

To convert a mile per hour measurement to a centimeter per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One mile per hour is equal to 44.704 centimeters per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in centimeters per second is equal to the miles per hour multiplied by 44.704.

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

Miles per hour and centimeters per second are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Miles Per Hour

Miles per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in miles in one hour.^{[1]}

The mile per hour is a US customary and imperial unit of speed. Miles per hour can be abbreviated as *mph*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *mi/h* or *MPH*. For example, 1 mile per hour can be written as 1 mph, 1 mi/h, or 1 MPH.

Miles per hour can be expressed using the formula:

v_{mph} = d_{mi}t_{hr}

The velocity in miles per hour is equal to the distance in miles divided by time in hours.

## 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.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.^{[2]}

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.
