  1. Miles per hour

    Miles per hour is an imperial unit of speed expressing the number of statute miles covered in one hour. It is currently the standard unit used for speed limits, and to express speeds generally, on roads in the United Kingdom and the United States. It is also often used to express the speed of delivery of a ball in various sporting events, such as cricket, tennis, and baseball. A common abbreviation is mph or MPH. In the International System of Units, the basic unit of speed or velocity is m/s. Road traffic speeds in most countries are quoted in km/h. Occasionally, however, both systems are used: for example, in Ireland, a judge considered a speeding case by examining speeds in both kilometres per hour and miles per hour. The judge was quoted as saying the speed seemed "very excessive" at 180 km/h but did not look "as bad" at 112 mph; a reduced fine was still imposed on the speeding driver. Nautical and aeronautical applications, however, favour the knot as a common unit of speed: one knot is one nautical mile per hour.

Examples of miles per hour in a Sentence

  1. Gunther Krichbaum:

    We are talking with Britain and I love Britain and want to keep talking to them, But when the rhetoric is driving you at 100 miles per hour up a blind alley, you have to realize that you won't be able to turn round at the end of the blind alley.

  2. Del Gobbo:

    A key finding is that physical activity among older adults does not have to be strenuous to reduce heart failure risk, we saw benefits for adults who walked at moderate or brisk pace( more than 2 or 3 miles per hour) and burned calories through leisure activity, like house or yard work, walking, engaging in outdoor activities, or other forms of physical activity, equivalent to about 30 minutes per day of moderate-intensity activity.

  3. Charles Culver:

    In order to increase the speed as much as it was increased in this case, you would have had to really, really move the throttle, frankly, I am puzzled about the whole thing. It's not like it was a few miles per hour over the speed limit.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    It's very true that the only difference between "TRY" and "TRIUMPH" is just the "UMPH", even though it may sound like a cliche to some. In my view, that tiny 'Umph' often gives you monumental mph (i.e. miles per hour) to accelerate and reach your destination much faster. The 'Umph' can mathematically be expressed as: Umph = U + mph. The minuscule 'Umph' can thus make a mega-difference, and all you need is that little 'Umph' to succeed. Hence you must strive to get that 'Umph' in your life; by pushing yourself slightly harder, and by putting that extra little kick in every struggle of life. With that little 'Umph' on your side, you'll surely break a leg! So, what are you waiting for?

  5. Fire Protection spokeswoman Amy Head:

    This week, we're forecast to see the hot and dry weather from this weekend continue, winds were expected to be mild in most areas with pockets of 20 to 30 miles per hour winds in the northeast part of the state.
