Enter your value in one of the conversion calculators below to convert cm/s to m/s or convert m/s to cm/s.
How to convert cm/s to m/s : Use the conversion calculator titled "Convert cm/s to m/s". Enter a value in the cm/s field and click on the "Calculate m/s" button. Your answer will appear in the m/s field.
How to convert m/s to cm/s : Use the conversion calculator titled "Convert m/s to cm/s". Enter a value in the m/s field and click on the "Calculate cm/s" button. Your answer will appear in the cm/s field.
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
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).
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
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

The following is a list of definitions relating to conversions between centimeters per second and meters per second.
Centimeters per second is a unit of speed in the Metric System. It measures the number of centimeters travelled in a second. The symbol for centimeters per second is cm/s and the International spelling is centimetres per second.
Meters per second is a unit of speed in the Metric System. It measures the number of meters travelled in a second. The symbol for meters per second is m/s and the International spelling is metres per second.
This table provides a summary of the Speed units within their respective measurement systems.
