## How to Convert Meters Per Second to Miles Per Hour

To convert a meter per second measurement to a mile per hour measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One meter per second is equal to 2.236936 miles per hour, so use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in miles per hour is equal to the meters per second multiplied by 2.236936.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 meters per second to miles per hour using the formula above.

Meters per second and miles per hour are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Meters Per Second

Meters per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in meters in one second.

The meter per second, or metre per second, is the SI derived unit for speed in the metric system. Meters per second can be abbreviated as *m/s*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *m/sec*. For example, 1 meter per second can be written as 1 m/s or 1 m/sec.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.^{[1]}

Meters per second can be expressed using the formula:

v_{m/s} = d_{m}t_{sec}

The velocity in meters per second is equal to the distance in meters divided by time in seconds.

## Miles Per Hour

Miles per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in miles in one hour.^{[2]}

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:

v_{mph} = d_{mi}t_{hr}

The velocity in miles per hour is equal to the distance in miles divided by time in hours.
