Meter Per Square Second (m/s2) is a unit in the category of Acceleration. It is also known as meter/square second, meters per square second, metre per square second, metres per square second. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Meter Per Square Second (m/s2) has a dimension of LT-2 where L is length, and T is time. This unit is the standard SI unit in this category.

Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).

Other units in the category of Acceleration include Celo (ft/s2), Centimeter Per Square Second (cm/s2), Foot Per Square Second (ft/s2), G (gravitational Acceleration) (g), Galileo, Inch Per Square Second (in/s2), Kilometer Per Hour Per Second (km/h-s), Leo, Mile (stat.) Per Hour Per Second (mph/s, mi/h-s), and Normal Acceleration (gn).
