How to Convert Miles per Hour to Centimeters per Second

To convert a measurement in miles per hour to a measurement in centimeters per second, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 44.704 centimeters per second/mile per hour.

Since one mile per hour is equal to 44.704 centimeters per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

centimeters per second = miles per hour × 44.704

The speed in centimeters per second is equal to the speed in 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.
centimeters per second = (5 mph × 44.704) = 223.52 cm/s

Miles per hour and centimeters per second are both units used to measure speed. Calculate speed in miles per hour or centimeters per second using our speed calculator or keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Are Miles per Hour?

Miles per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled 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:
vmph = dmi / thr

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

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.

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.[2] For example, cm/s is expressing a change in length or distance relative to a change in time.

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.
