## How to convert meters per hour to miles per hour (m/h to mph)

The formula for converting meters per hour to miles per hour is: mph = m/h × 0.0006213712. To calculate the meter per hour value in miles per hour first substitute the meter per hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 meter per hour in miles per hour we follow these steps:

mph = m/h × 0.0006213712

mph = 1 × 0.0006213712

mph = 0.0006213712

In other words, 1 meter per hour is equal to 0.0006213712 miles per hour.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 6 meters per hour to miles per hour is:

1. Understand the conversion formula: mph = m/h × 0.0006213712
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 6 for m/h so the formula becomes: mph = 6 × 0.0006213712
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 6 × 0.0006213712 = 0.0037282272 mph

In summary, 6 meters per hour is equal to 0.0037282272 miles per hour.

## Converting miles per hour to meters per hour

In order to convert the other way around i.e. miles per hour to meters per hour, you would use the following formula: m/h = mph × 1609.34397989479. To convert miles per hour to meters per hour first substitute the mile per hour value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 mile per hour in meters per hour we follow these steps:

m/h = mph × 1609.34397989479

m/h = 1 × 1609.34397989479

m/h = 1609.34397989479

Or in other words, 1 mile per hour is equal to 1609.34397989479 meters per hour.

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### What is a Meter Per Hour?

Meter per hour is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in hours. It is derived from the fundamental unit of length, the meter, and the unit of time, the hour.
To provide an example, let's consider a car traveling at a speed of 60 meters per hour. This means that for every hour, the car covers a distance of 60 meters. If we extend this example, after 2 hours of continuous travel at this speed, the car would have traveled a total distance of 120 meters.
Meter per hour is not as commonly used as other units of speed, such as meters per second or kilometers per hour, as it represents a relatively slower rate of movement. However, it can find applications in certain scenarios where slower speeds are relevant, such as the movement of heavy machinery or the flow rate of fluids in specific industrial processes.
It's important to note that meter per hour can be converted to other units of speed, such as meters per second or kilometers per hour, using appropriate conversion factors. For example, 1 meter per hour is equivalent to 0.00028 meters per second or approximately 0.001 kilometers per hour.
In summary, meter per hour is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in hours. While not as commonly used as some other speed units, it can be applicable in situations where slower rates of movement are considered.

### What is a Mile Per Hour?

Mile per hour (abbreviated as mph) is a unit of speed commonly used in countries that follow the imperial system of measurement, such as the United States and the United Kingdom. It measures the distance traveled in miles divided by the time taken in hours.
The mile, which is the primary unit in this measurement, is an imperial unit of length equal to 5,280 feet or approximately 1.609 kilometers. It originated from ancient Roman measurements and has been widely adopted in various English-speaking countries.
The hour, the unit of time in this measurement, is a standard unit of time equal to 60 minutes or 3,600 seconds. It is used to quantify the duration of an event or the time taken to travel a certain distance.
To better understand mile per hour, let's consider an example. Imagine a car traveling at a constant speed of 60 mph. This means that for every hour, the car covers a distance of 60 miles. In practical terms, if the car maintains this speed for 4 hours, it would have traveled a total distance of 240 miles.
Mile per hour is widely used to measure the speed of vehicles, such as cars, motorcycles, trucks, and airplanes, on roads, highways, and runways. Speed limit signs, traffic reports, and vehicle speedometers often display speeds in miles per hour.
It's important to note that mile per hour is not the sole unit of speed used globally. Many countries, particularly those that follow the metric system, use kilometers per hour (km/h) as their primary unit of speed. Conversion between mile per hour and kilometer per hour can be done using the conversion factor of approximately 1.609.
In summary, mile per hour is a unit of speed used in countries that follow the imperial system of measurement. It represents the distance traveled in miles divided by the time taken in hours and is commonly used to measure the speed of vehicles. Understanding and converting between different speed units, such as mile per hour and kilometer per hour, is essential for international travel and communication.
