## How to convert

1 mile per second (mi/s) = 9656064 centimeter per minute (cm/min). Mile Per Second (mi/s) is a unit of Speed used in Standard system. Centimeter Per Minute (cm/min) is a unit of Speed used in Metric system.

## Miles per second: A unit of speed

Miles per second (mi/s) is a unit of speed or velocity in the US customary and imperial systems. It measures how fast an object is moving by calculating the distance traveled in miles divided by the time taken in seconds. For example, if a bullet travels 1 mile in 0.5 seconds, its speed is 2 mi/s.

## Where miles per second are used

Miles per second are mainly used in physics and astronomy to measure the speed or velocity of very fast objects and phenomena.

For example, the escape velocity of the Earth is about 11 km/s or about 6.84 mi/s.

The orbital velocity of the Earth around the Sun is about 30 km/s or about 18.64 mi/s.

The speed of light in a vacuum is about 300000 km/s or about 186282 mi/s.

The speed of sound in air at sea level is about 343 m/s or about 0.213139 mi/s.

## Definition of miles per second

According to the US customary and imperial systems definition, one mile per second is the speed of a body that covers a distance of one mile in a time of one second.

Mathematically, it can be expressed as:

where v is the speed or velocity in miles per second, s is the distance traveled in miles, and t is the time taken in seconds.

## History of miles per second

The concept of speed or velocity has been studied since ancient times by philosophers and scientists such as Aristotle, Galileo, Newton, etc.

The mile was originally derived from the Roman mile which was defined as one thousand paces or about 5000 Roman feet.

The second was originally defined in terms of the Earth’s rotation as one eighty-six thousand four hundredth of a mean solar day.

The combination of these two units resulted in the mile per second as a unit of speed or velocity.

The mile per second was officially adopted as part of the US customary and imperial systems in the late 18th century.

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.
