Metres squared per second is the SI derived unit of angular velocity, defined by distance or displacement in metres multiplied by distance again in metres and divided by time in seconds. The unit is written in symbols as m2/s or m2·s−1 or m2s−1. It may be better understood when phrased as "metres per second times metres", i.e. the velocity of an object with respect to a position.
