Metre per seicont (U.S. spellin: meter per seicont) is an SI derived unit o baith speed (scalar) an velocity (vector quantity which specifies baith magnitude an a specific direction), defined bi distance in metres dividit bi time in seiconts.

The SI unit seembols are m·s−1, m s−1, m/s, or m/s,[1] whiles (unoffeecially) abbreviatit as "mps". Whaur metres per seicont are several orders o magnitude too slow tae be convenient, sic as in astronomical measurements, velocities mey be gien in kilometres per seicont, whaur 1 km/s is 1000 metres per seicont, whiles unoffeecially abbreviatit as "kps".
