## Miles Per Hour

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

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.

## Knots

One knot is equal to a speed of one nautical mile per hour, or one minute of latitude per hour.

Knots can be abbreviated as *kn*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *kt*. For example, 1 knot can be written as 1 kn or 1 kt.
