Conversion Formulas

Let's take a closer look at the conversion formulas so that you can do these conversions yourself with a calculator or with an old-fashioned pencil and paper.

The formula to convert from cm/s to m/s is:

m/s = cm/s x 0.01

The formula to convert from m/s to cm/s is:

cm/s = m/s x 100

Conversion Examples

Next, let's look at some examples showing the work and calculations that are involved in converting between centimeters per second (cm/s) and meters per second (m/s).

Centimeters per second to Meters per second Conversion Example

Task: Convert 250 cm/s to m/s (show work)

Formula:
cm/s x 0.01 = m/s

Calculations:
250 cm/s x 0.01 = 2.5 m/s

Result:
250 cm/s is equal to 2.5 m/s

Meters per second to Centimeters per second Conversion Example

Task: Convert 40 m/s to cm/s (show work)

Formula:
m/s x 100 = cm/s

Calculations:
40 m/s x 100 = 4,000 cm/s

Result:
40 m/s is equal to 4,000 cm/s
