The fastest way to convert kilometers per hour to miles per hour is to use this simple formula:

mph = km/h ÷ 1.609344

The speed in miles per hour is equal to the speed in kilometers per hour divided by 1.609344.Since one kilometer per hour is equal to 1.609344 miles per hour,^{[1]} that's the conversion ratio used in the formula.

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

mph = (5 km/h ÷ 1.609344) = 3.106856 mph

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

## What Are Kilometers per Hour?

Kilometers per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled in kilometers in one hour.

The kilometer per hour, or kilometre per hour, is an SI unit of speed in the metric system. Kilometers per hour can be abbreviated as *km/h*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *kph*. For example, 1 kilometer per hour can be written as 1 km/h or 1 kph.

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.^{[2]} For example, km/h is expressing a change in length or distance relative to a change in time.

Kilometers per hour can be expressed using the formula:

v_{km/h} = d_{km} / t_{hr}

The velocity in kilometers per hour is equal to the distance in kilometers divided by time in hours.

## What Are Miles per Hour?

Miles per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled in miles in one hour.^{[3]}

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.
