## What is centimeter per second?

The **centimetre per second** (or **centimeter per second**) is a unit of speed in the metric system equal to 0.01 meters per second (1 cm/s = 0.01 m/s), the derived unit of speed in the International System of Units (SI). It is also equal to about 0.036 kilometers per hour (km/h), or 0.022369 miles per hour (mph or mi/h), or 0.0328 feet per second (ft/s), or 10 millimeters per second (mm/s) or 0.3937 inches per second (in/s).

The speed is the distance traveled by an object during a period of time. Thus, centimeters per second (centimeters/second) show how many centimeters are traveled or displaced in one second. The centimeter is a unit of length in the metric system while the second is a unit of time.
