# Velocity Units Converter

## Convert between speed and velocity units like m/s, km/h, knots, mph and ft/s.

Speed is the ratio of covered distance to time and can expressed as

v = s / t                                      (1)

where

v = velocity (m/s, km/h, mph ..)

s = distance traveled (m, km, miles ..)

t = time taken (s, hours ...)

The table below can be used to convert between common speed and velocity units:
