## What is meter per second?

The **metre per second** (**meter per second**) is the derived unit of speed in the International System of Units (SI). It is equal to 3.6 kilometers per hour (km/h), or about 2.236936 miles per hour (mph or mi/h), or 3.28084 feet per second (ft/s), or 39.370079 inches per second (in/s) or 1.943844 knots (kn).

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