How to Convert Miles Per Hour to Speed Of Sound

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

To convert a mile per hour measurement to a speed of sound measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One mile per hour is equal to 0.001303 speed of sound, so use this simple formula to convert:

speed of sound = miles per hour × 0.001303

The speed in speed of sound is equal to the miles per hour multiplied by 0.001303.

For example, here's how to convert 5 miles per hour to speed of sound using the formula above.
5 mph = (5 × 0.001303) = 0.006517 speed of sound

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:
vmph = dmithr

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

Speed Of Sound

The speed of sound is the distance a sound wave travels through an elastic medium. The speed of sound through air at 20 °C is equal to 343 meters per second, or roughly 767 miles per hour.
