MPH to KPH Explained:

MPH (miles per hour) and KPH (kilometers per hour) are two units used to measure speed. While MPH is commonly used in the United States and the United Kingdom, KPH is the standard unit of speed in most other countries, including Canada, Australia, and most of Europe.

To convert MPH to KPH, you can use the conversion formula:

Speed in kph = Speed in mph x 1.60934

Conversely, to convert KPH to MPH, you can use the formula:

Speed in mph = Speed in kph / 1.60934

MPH to KPH Example:

Let's say you're driving a car in the United States, and the speed limit is 55 miles per hour (mph). However, you're planning to travel to Canada, where the speed limit is given in kilometers per hour (kph).
You want to know how fast you can drive in kph without breaking the law.
To convert from mph to kph, you can use the formula:

Speed in kph = Speed in mph x 1.60934

Entering your numbers, you get:

Speed in kph = 55 mph x 1.60934 = 88.5137 kph

Therefore, the speed limit of 55 mph in the United States is equivalent to 88.5 kph in Canada.

This means that you should not drive faster than 88.5 kph when you reach Canada, in order to stay within the legal speed limit.
