## How to Convert Speed Of Sound to Miles Per Hour

To convert a speed of sound measurement to a mile per hour measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One speed of sound is equal to 767.269148 miles per hour, so use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in miles per hour is equal to the speed of sound multiplied by 767.269148.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 speed of sound to miles per hour using the formula above.

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

## 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,^{[1]} or roughly 767 miles per hour.

Speed of sound can be abbreviated as *sound*, for example 1 speed of sound can be written as 1 sound.

## 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.
