 Can anyone tell me how to convert knots into miles per hour. (mph) thanks

 multiply knots by 1.15 and you'll have mph ex: 100 (kts) X 1.15 = 115 (mph) Brock "useacalculatororane6b" Mandrake

 What about how to convert Mach into miles per hour (MPH)?

 To convert Knots or MPH into Mach you need more info such as the ambiant temp and so forth. There is no straight conversion.

 Definitely not as easy..... TAS = MACH x 38.968 square root Temperature. Temperature is in degrees kelvin. TAS is in Knots. Or you could just use the good old Jeppesen E6 computer.

 Gosh... That's pretty tough to understand the formula on conversation of mach into MPH. Boy, those chemist or physicist or any scientists making it quite difficult for normal like us to do the simple mathematics to figure it out.

 Go buy a cheap E-6b flight computer. It will do it for you in a few seconds.

 The speed of sound decreases as altitude increases. Concorde flys at mach2, however this is at 55,000 feet, much higher than a typical 33,000 ft cruising altitude, where some passenger aircraft may fly at, say, mach 0.8. Try this link... http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/hframe.html look for speed of sound in menu on left, near to the bottom.
