How to Convert Speed

Speed is basically the resultant of distance divided by time. The SI unit (International System of Units) of speed is the metre per second, but the most common unit of speed is either kilometre per hour (km/h) or miles per hour (mph). For air and marine travel the knot (kn) is commonly used.

1 Kilometre per hour = 0.62 Mile per hour

1 Mile per hour = 1.60 Kilometre per hour

1 Knot = 1.85 Kilometre per hour

1 Knot = 1.15 Mile per hour
