Do you want to convert meters per second to miles per hour?

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

To convert a measurement in miles per hour to a measurement in meters per second, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 0.44704 meters per second/mile per hour.

Since one mile per hour is equal to 0.44704 meters per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

meters per second = miles per hour × 0.44704

The speed in meters per second is equal to the speed in miles per hour multiplied by 0.44704.

For example, here's how to convert 5 miles per hour to meters per second using the formula above.
meters per second = (5 mph × 0.44704) = 2.2352 m/s

Miles per hour and meters per second are both units used to measure speed. Calculate speed in miles per hour or meters per second using our speed calculator or keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What Are Miles per Hour?

Miles per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled 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:
vmph = dmi / thr

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

## What Are Meters per Second?

Meters per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled 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 the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units. For example, m/s is expressing a change in length or distance relative to a change in time.

Meters per second can be expressed using the formula:
vm/s = dm / tsec

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