The metre per second (American English: meter per second) is an SI derived unit of both speed (scalar) and velocity (vector quantity which specifies both magnitude and a specific direction), defined by distance in metres divided by time in seconds.The SI unit symbols are mÂ·sâˆ’1, m sâˆ’1, m/s, or {{sfrac|m|s}},SI brochure, Section 5.1 sometimes (unofficially) abbreviated as {{em|mps}}.

## Relation to other measures

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.
