## Speed conversionSpeed conversion involves converting a quantity from one unit of speed measurement to another unit. The conversion process involves multiplying the value to be converted by a conversion factor. This conversion factor is determined by the relationship between the two units of measurement. For example, to convert kilometers per hour to meters per second, the value in kilometers per hour is multiplied by 0.27778 (the conversion factor).Here are some common speed conversion formulas:
- Miles per hour (mph) to kilometers per hour (km/h): Multiply the value in mph by 1.60934. - Kilometers per hour (km/h) to meters per second (m/s): Multiply the value in km/h by 0.27778. - Feet per second (ft/s) to meters per second (m/s): Multiply the value in ft/s by 0.3048. - Knots to kilometers per hour (km/h): Multiply the value in knots by 1.852. Speed is a fundamental concept in physics that measures the rate at which an object moves or covers a distance. It is defined as the distance covered by an object in a given time. The SI unit of speed is meters per second (m/s), which represents the distance covered in one second. Other commonly used units of speed include kilometers per hour (km/h), miles per hour (mph), and knots. In physics, there are two types of speed: average speed and instantaneous speed. Average speed is the total distance covered by an object divided by the time taken to cover that distance. Instantaneous speed, on the other hand, is the speed of an object at a particular instant in time. Here are some units of speed: meters per second (m/s), kilometers per hour (km/h), miles per hour (mph), feet per second (ft/s), knots (nautical miles per hour), mach (speed relative to the speed of sound), light speed (c, the speed of light in a vacuum), kilometers per second (km/s), miles per second (mi/s). Below are various speed unit conversions:
