How to Convert Miles Per Hour to Feet Per Second

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

To convert a mile per hour measurement to a foot per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One mile per hour is equal to 1.466667 feet per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

feet per second = miles per hour × 1.466667

The speed in feet per second is equal to the miles per hour multiplied by 1.466667.

For example, here's how to convert 5 miles per hour to feet per second using the formula above.
5 mph = (5 × 1.466667) = 7.333333 ft/s

Miles Per Hour

Miles per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in miles in one hour.[1]

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 = dmithr

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

Feet Per Second

Feet per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in feet in one second.

The foot per second is a US customary and imperial unit of speed. Feet per second can be abbreviated as ft/s, and are also sometimes abbreviated as ft/sec or fps. For example, 1 foot per second can be written as 1 ft/s, 1 ft/sec, or 1 fps.

Feet per second can be expressed using the formula:
vft/s = dfttsec

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