Light Speed (ls) is a unit of Speed used in Metric system.
Centimeters per minute: A unit of speed
Centimeters per minute (cm/min) is a unit of speed or velocity in the International System of Units (SI). It measures how fast an object is moving by calculating the distance traveled in centimeters divided by the time taken in minutes. For example, if a snail travels 6 centimeters in 3 minutes, its speed is 2 cm/min.
How to convert centimeters per minute
Centimeters per minute can be converted to other units of speed or velocity by using simple conversion factors. Here are some common units and their conversion factors:
- Meters per second (m/s): To convert from cm/min to m/s, divide by 6000. To convert from m/s to cm/min, multiply by 6000. For example, 1 cm/min is equal to 0.000166667 m/s, and 10 m/s is equal to 60000 cm/min.
- Kilometers per hour (km/h): To convert from cm/min to km/h, divide by 100000. To convert from km/h to cm/min, multiply by 100000. For example, 1 cm/min is equal to 0.0006 km/h, and 50 km/h is equal to 833333.333 cm/min.

Where centimeters per minute are used
Centimeters per minute are mainly used in science and engineering to measure the flow rate of fluids and gases.
For example, the standard cubic centimeter per minute (SCCM) is a unit used to quantify the flow rate of a fluid at standard conditions of temperature and pressure.
The flow rate of blood through a capillary is often measured in centimeters per minute.
The flow rate of air through a wind tunnel is often measured in centimeters per second, which is equivalent to centimeters per minute divided by 60.
Definition of centimeters per minute
According to the SI definition, one centimeter per minute is the speed of a body that covers a distance of one centimeter in a time of one minute.
Mathematically, it can be expressed as:
where v is the speed or velocity in centimeters per minute, s is the distance traveled in centimeters, and t is the time taken in minutes.
History of centimeters per minute
The concept of speed or velocity has been studied since ancient times by philosophers and scientists such as Aristotle, Galileo, Newton, etc.
The centimeter was originally derived from the French centimeter which was defined as one hundredth of a meter.
The meter was originally derived from the French meter which was defined as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole.
The minute was originally derived from the Babylonian sexagesimal system which divided an hour into sixty minutes.
The combination of these two units resulted in the centimeter per minute as a unit of speed or velocity.
The centimeter per minute was officially adopted as part of the SI system in 1960.

Definition of Light Speed
Light speed, commonly denoted c, is a universal physical constant that is exactly equal to 299,792,458 metres per second (approximately 300,000 kilometres per second; 186,000 miles per second; 671 million miles per hour). It is the speed at which light waves propagate through vacuum, and also the upper limit for the speed at which any form of matter or energy can travel through space. Light speed is an essential parameter in the theories of relativity and electromagnetism, and has relevance beyond the context of light and electromagnetic waves.
How to Convert Light Speed
To convert light speed to other units of speed, we need to multiply or divide by the corresponding conversion factors. For example, to convert light speed to kilometers per hour, we need to multiply by 3,600, since there are 3,600 seconds in one hour. To convert light speed to miles per hour, we need to multiply by 2.2369362920544, since there are 2.2369362920544 miles in one kilometer.
Here are some examples of how to convert light speed to other units of length in the US Standard system and the SI system:
- To convert c to kilometers per hour (km/h), we multiply by 3,600: c x 3,600 = 1,079,252,848.8 km/h
- To convert c to miles per hour (mph), we multiply by 2.2369362920544: c x 2.2369362920544 = 670,616,629.384 mph
- To convert c to feet per second (fps), we multiply by 3.2808398950131, since there are 3.2808398950131 feet in one meter: c x 3.2808398950131 = 983,571,056.43 fps
- To convert c to knots (kn), we multiply by 1.9438444924406, since there are 1.9438444924406 nautical miles in one kilometer: c x 1.9438444924406 = 582,749,918.284 kn
- To convert c to meters per second (m/s), we use the exact value: c = 299,792,458 m/s
- To convert c to meters per minute (m/min), we multiply by 60, since there are 60 seconds in one minute: c x 60 = 17,987,547,480 m/min
Where Light Speed Is Used
Light speed is used in various fields of science and technology where the properties and behavior of light and electromagnetic waves are studied or applied. For example:
- In astronomy and cosmology, light speed is used to measure astronomical distances and time scales, such as light-years and parsecs. It also determines the observable size and age of the universe and the effects of gravity on light such as gravitational lensing and gravitational redshift.
- In physics and engineering, light speed is used to calculate the energy and momentum of particles and fields using the famous equation E = mc2. It also sets the limit for causality and information transfer in physical systems.
- In communication and navigation, light speed is used to determine the delay and bandwidth of signals transmitted through various media such as optical fibers or radio waves. It also affects the accuracy and precision of measurements based on time-of-flight or Doppler effect methods.
History of Light Speed
The concept of light speed has a long history that spans across different cultures and disciplines. Some of the milestones in its development are:
- In ancient times, many philosophers and scientists assumed that light traveled instantaneously or infinitely fast.
- In the late 17th century, Danish astronomer Ole Romer was the first to demonstrate that light had a finite speed by observing the apparent motion of Jupiter’s moon Io. He estimated that light took about 22 minutes to cross the diameter of Earth’s orbit.
- In the early 18th century, English astronomer James Bradley discovered the aberration of starlight caused by Earth’s motion around the Sun. He used this phenomenon to calculate that light traveled about 10 thousand times faster than Earth’s orbital speed.
- In the late 19th century, French physicist Hippolyte Fizeau and American physicist Albert Michelson conducted various experiments using rotating mirrors or interferometers to measure the speed of light more accurately in air or vacuum.
- In the early 20th century, German-born physicist Albert Einstein proposed the special theory of relativity, which postulated that light speed was constant and independent of the motion of the source or the observer. He also showed that light speed was the maximum speed for any form of matter or energy in the universe.
- In the late 20th century, various methods and standards were developed to define and measure light speed more precisely and consistently. In 1983, the International System of Units (SI) adopted the exact value of 299,792,458 metres per second as the definition of light speed in vacuum.
