# A question on formula conversion

## Recommended Posts

Hi, can somebody please tell me how to convert nautical miles into mph, im not sure but I think it is 1.8, and how many feet are there in a metre, all assistance will be much appreciated, thanks.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/for...argo_hauler.gif http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e62/ritz...tishAirways.jpg http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e62/ritzer82/untitled.jpg

I don't want to sound rude, but isn't that what the internet is all about? Search using Google perhaps?

Hey, 1 mile/hour = 0.868 nautical mile/hour 1 metre = 3.280 feet

It wasn't hard! Googles "nautical miles conversion" and there were lots of interesting sites. Try this:http://www.metric-conversions.org/length/n...es-to-miles.htm"Nautical Miles to miles conversion calculator Nautical Miles - A unit of length used in marine navigation that is equal to a minute of arc of a great circle on a sphere. One international nautical mile is equivalent to 1,852 meters or 1.151 statute miles. Miles - a unit of length equal to 1760 yards"

Quick and easy, use 1.15 to go from nm to sm which you can do in your head. Just add 10% and then half of that. 200 kts becomes 200+20+10=230 mph (about).
