## How to convert miles per second to meters per hour (mi/s to m/h)

The formula for converting miles per second to meters per hour is: m/h = mi/s × 5793638.40183993. To calculate the mile per second value in meters per hour first substitute the mile per second value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 mile per second in meters per hour we follow these steps:

m/h = mi/s × 5793638.40183993

m/h = 1 × 5793638.40183993

m/h = 5793638.40183993

In other words, 1 mile per second is equal to 5793638.40183993 meters per hour.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 4 miles per second to meters per hour is:

1. Understand the conversion formula: m/h = mi/s × 5793638.40183993
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 4 for mi/s so the formula becomes: m/h = 4 × 5793638.40183993
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 4 × 5793638.40183993 = 23174553.60735972 m/h

In summary, 4 miles per second is equal to 23174553.60735972 meters per hour.

## Converting meters per hour to miles per second

In order to convert the other way around i.e. meters per hour to miles per second, you would use the following formula: mi/s = m/h × 0.0000001726031089. To convert meters per hour to miles per second first substitute the meter per hour value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 meter per hour in miles per second we follow these steps:

mi/s = m/h × 0.0000001726031089

mi/s = 1 × 0.0000001726031089

mi/s = 0.0000001726031089

Or in other words, 1 meter per hour is equal to 0.0000001726031089 miles per second.

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### What is a Mile Per Second?

Mile per second is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in miles divided by the time taken in seconds. It is a relatively high-speed measurement used to describe rapid velocities.
To provide an example, let's consider a rocket that is traveling at a speed of 10 miles per second. This means that for every second, the rocket covers a distance of 10 miles. In a span of 5 seconds, the rocket would travel a total distance of 50 miles.
Mile per second is predominantly used in the field of aerospace and astrodynamics, where extremely high velocities are involved. It is a suitable unit to describe the speed of spacecraft, missiles, or other objects that achieve significant velocities in a short amount of time.
For comparison, the speed of sound is approximately 0.21 miles per second. Therefore, a velocity of 10 miles per second is significantly faster than the speed of sound. This indicates that the rocket is traveling at supersonic speeds and likely in the realm of space travel.
It's important to note that mile per second is not a commonly used unit for everyday speeds, as it represents extremely rapid velocities that are beyond the capabilities of most vehicles or objects. More commonly used speed units include miles per hour, kilometers per hour, or meters per second.
In summary, mile per second is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in miles divided by the time taken in seconds. It is primarily used in aerospace and astrodynamics to describe high velocities, typically associated with space travel.

### 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.
