Meters Per Second (m/s or m/sec) Conversions
The meter per second (symbol: m/s or m/sec) is the Standard International (SI) unit of linear speed as well as velocity (vector quantity (which have direction and magnitude)), which are measured by taking the distance traveled during some duration and dividing that length by the time, equal to the speed of a body covering a distance of one metre in a time of one second. The SI unit symbols are m/s, m·s−1, m s−1, or m/s, sometimes (unofficially) abbreviated as mps.
All Meters Per Second Converters
The benz, named in honour of Karl Benz, has been proposed as a name for one metre per second. Although it has seen some support as a practical unit, primarily from German sources, it was rejected as the SI unit of velocity and has not seen widespread use or acceptance.
