How to Convert Speed Of Sound to Centimeters Per Second

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

To convert a speed of sound measurement to a centimeter per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One speed of sound is equal to 34,300 centimeters per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

centimeters per second = speed of sound × 34,300

The speed in centimeters per second is equal to the speed of sound multiplied by 34,300.

For example, here's how to convert 5 speed of sound to centimeters per second using the formula above.
5 sound = (5 × 34,300) = 171,500 cm/s

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

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, 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.

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.

Centimeters per second can be expressed using the formula:
vm/s = dcmtsec

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