A millisecond (from milli- and second; abbreviation: ms) is a thousandth (1/1,000) of a second. Its symbol is ms. One millisecond is to one second as one second is to 16.67 minutes.

10 milliseconds (a hundredth of a second) are called a centisecond.

100 milliseconds (1/10th of a second) are called a decisecond.

To help compare orders of magnitude of different times, this page lists times between 10−3 seconds and 100 seconds (1 millisecond and one second). See also times of other orders of magnitude.
