Kilometers Per Second to Miles Per Hour Conversion
Enter the speed in kilometers per second below to get the value converted to miles per hour.
How to Convert Kilometers Per Second to Miles Per Hour
To convert a kilometer per second measurement to a mile per hour measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio.
Since one kilometer per second is equal to 2,236.936292 miles per hour, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The speed in miles per hour is equal to the kilometers per second multiplied by 2,236.936292.
Kilometers per second and miles per hour are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
The kilometer per second, or kilometre per second, is an SI unit of speed in the metric system. Kilometers per second can be abbreviated as km/s, and are also sometimes abbreviated as km/sec. For example, 1 kilometer per second can be written as 1 km/s or 1 km/sec.
In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.
Kilometers per second can be expressed using the formula:
vkm/s = dkm / tsec
The velocity in kilometers per second is equal to the distance in kilometers divided by time in seconds.
The mile per hour is a US customary and imperial unit of speed. Miles per hour can be abbreviated as mph, and are also sometimes abbreviated as mi/h or MPH. For example, 1 mile per hour can be written as 1 mph, 1 mi/h, or 1 MPH.
Miles per hour can be expressed using the formula:
vmph = dmi / thr
The velocity in miles per hour is equal to the distance in miles divided by time in hours.
