Meter per second

meter per second (unit symbol: m/s) the derived unit of the speed is in the SI-UNIT system. An object, which moves with a constant speed of 1 m/s, puts a distance back of a meter in one second .

In the everyday life many becomeSpeeds instead indicated in km/h. The conversion from m/s to km/h is made by the factor 3,6.
