To convert a measurement in meters per second to a measurement in miles per hour, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 2.236936 miles per hour/meter per second.

Since one meter per second is equal to 2.236936 miles per hour, you can use this simple formula to convert:

miles per hour = meters per second × 2.236936

The speed in miles per hour is equal to the speed in meters per second multiplied by 2.236936.

**For example,** here's how to convert 5 meters per second to miles per hour using the formula above.

miles per hour = (5 m/s × 2.236936) = 11.184681 mph

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

## 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.^{[1]} 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:

v_{m/s} = d_{m} / t_{sec}

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

## What Are Miles per Hour?

Miles per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled 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.
