Units of speed

You may not be familiar with all of the units present in this speed conversion calculator. Feet per second and miles per hour are units commonly used in countries that use the imperial system, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. On the other hand, meters per second and kilometers per hour are the units of choice for those nations that use the metric system, i.e., the rest of the world.

If you are looking to take to the high seas, then knots are your unit of choice (they are used regardless of your affiliation to the imperial or metric systems). One knot equals one nautical mile per hour (approximately 1.151 mph).
