Online calculators to convert centimeters per second to meters per second (cm/s to m/s) and meters per second to centimeters per second (m/s to cm/s) with formulas, examples, and tables. Our conversions provide a quick and easy way to convert between Speed units.

Enter your value in one of the conversion calculators below to **convert cm/s to m/s ** or **convert m/s to cm/s**.

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 from centimeters per second to meters per second (cm/s to m/s) or converting from meters per second to centimeters per second (m/s to cm/s).

Task: Convert 250 cm/s to m/s (show work)Formula:cm/s x 0.01 = m/sCalculations:250 cm/s x 0.01 = 2.5 m/sResult: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/sCalculations:40 m/s x 100 = 4,000 cm/sResult:40 m/s is equal to 4,000 cm/s

For quick reference purposes, below are conversion tables that you can use to convert from cm/s to m/s, and m/s to 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.

Unit | Symbol | Measurement System | Description |
---|---|---|---|

inches per second | in/s | US Customary Units/Imperial System | |

feet per second | ft/s | US Customary Units/Imperial System | 1 ft/s = 12 in/s |
