Length is the numerical value of the length of the line (not necessarily straight) from the starting point to the ending.

1 mile = 1.609 kilometers (km)

You can quickly perform this simple mathematical operation using our online program. To do this, enter the initial value in the corresponding field and click the button.

For complex calculations of converting several units of measurement to the required one (for example, for mathematical, physical or estimated analysis of a group of positions), you can use universal unit converters.

This page contains the easiest online conversions for miles to kilometers. Using this calculator, you can transfer miles to km and vice versa in one click.

You convert the distance from land miles to kilometers

How many kilometers are in a mile - a mile is equal to km

A mile is the most popular unit for measuring length; it is 5,280 feet (1,760 yards or about 1,609 meters). The mile, which numbers 5,280 kilometers, is called the earth mile or authorized mile. It differs from the nautical mile (1,852 meters, about 6,076.1 kilometers). The use of miles as a unit of measurement is now common in the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Canada.

A kilometer (in SI it is designated as “km”) is a unit of measurement of length in the metric system, which is equal to 1000 m (also written as 1E + 3 m). It is usually used for the official calculation of the distance between geographical objects on earth and is used in most countries of the world.

Match table

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the table of correspondence of the permitted speed on Russian roads and the speedometer readings in miles:

Current limit, km / hSpeedometer readings for which there is no excess, mph

It should be borne in mind that administrative responsibility under Art. 12.9 KoAA occurs when the speed is exceeded by 20 km / h, so the speedometer values ​​shown in the table have an “acceleration” of about 10 miles.

Speedometer Types

Currently, there are several types of speedometers:

The speedometer scale with an arrow can be in kilometers, miles, or have double values, as in the picture:

In cars with an electronic speedometer, the dashboard settings often have the option of choosing to display kmh or mph. In some cases, the transfer is carried out by connecting a special computer to the diagnostic connector of the vehicle or by flashing the electronic unit.

Combined speedometers (with an arrow and an electronic display at the same time) can also have the ability to configure units. In this case, we recommend that you refer to the operating instructions of your car.
