How much power is 100 mph? I hope that someone could answer me. What means mph?

Many thanks.

A lot if you are talking about catching a bullet in your teeth. Don't do that.

"mph" is most often a reference to "miles per hour" as in how fast a car goes; 35mph = 35 miles per hour. I think the equation you are looking for is one that would allow you to 'translate' velocity to power. No? If that is so, then you would need an equation that would apply to your 'project' specifically in order to get a correct answer.

Hi João
I know in Europe we do not have miles, feets, pounds, Fahrenheit...

Here are some measures:

1 inch = ~ 2,5 centimeter
1 foot = ~ 30 centimeter
1 mile = ~ 1,6 kilometer (quilômetro)

The answer for your question:
>100 mph = 160 kilometer per hour

Penny (1 Cent)
Nickel (5 Cent)
Dime (10 Cent)
Quarter (25 Cent)

Hope this helps,

You will want to know that mph is not a measure of power. It is a measure of speed similar to kph (kilometers per hour)in countries using the metric system.

Perhaps I could be more helpful if I knew what inspires your question.

If you are looking for the formula to translate Kilometers per hour (KPH) to
Miles per hour (MPH) then it is
1MPH = .62KPH. If that is not what you
were looking for, then I don't understand the question.

Just out of curiosity, how did that question lead to bullet catching? That one threw me.

Actually, 0.62 mph = 1 kph.

1 mph = 1.61 kph.

Speed has nothing to do with power. Methinks the question was misstated.

100 mph? = 30 mph over the British maximum speed limit, = fine, and penalty points on driving licence UNLESS you are a professional footballer with a good legal adviser, then you seem to be above the Law and HAVE THE POWER to get away with it, and all your dumb doting fans, many who have also been fined for speeding, don't seem to mind you getting away with it either!! Smile


That's HOW MUCH POWER 100 mph is!!

S2000,

You are, of course, correct. Not sure how I typed that backwards.

Aznviet, I think we are the only one. You'd think the big guys over here could take a hint and just move over to metric. It causes so much of a hassle to have both. Plus, almost everything you buy here of use in school has metric on it, so why we continue to use standard, who knows.
On the other hand, you have different fingers.

I thought the UK also used the standard system.

João Miranda, what was the context that you came across this? I think that would go a long way to answering the question.

Yes and thank God for that.

I have enough trouble with the measurements we use now!

The metric system would totally screw me up!

It's my understanding that US scientists use the metric system now, it is just the non-scientific public that don't. Remember the Mars probe whose failure was blamed on one group of scientists/technicians using imperial instead of metric measurements?

Canada (where I live) is a good example of what happens when you make the switch. After a while, almost everyone gets used to Celsius for temperature or kph for speed. After all, you can go outside and feel how warm 15C is, and if you drive you get the feel of kilometres pretty fast. Trying to convert to the old system in your head is not the way to go, it just gets too confusing. You have to learn "how big" or "how much" something is.

BUT, if you listen to people talk, most still refer to height and weight in feet/inches and pounds, not metres/centimetres and kilograms. "He was 6 feet, 200 pounds" has more impact than "he was 1.83 metres, 91 kilos" I guess. And recipes (old ones especially) are usually not in metric, so you have no choice about trying to convert pounds to kilos or ounces to millilitress when you are in the grocery.

We converted from standard to metric back in the sixties (before my time!!) but we still measure our height in feet and our baby's weight in pounds and ounces (I think that is so our Grandmothers can relate the weight to their childrens weight!!). We have started to refer to our own weight in kilograms and all recipes (barring some of the old ones) are in grams and ml's (millilitres).

The other thing we converted was our currency. We used to use the English system (Pounds, shillings, etc) but now use dollars and cents.

I guess it just takes a while for the conversion to be complete, but after a while it just becomes second nature.
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are
