So I was thinking the other day why is kmph appear bigger than mph in conversions. I thought sense km was a bigger number it would be smaller because converting mi to KM u would reach .6 of a mile. Anyways I then I realized per hour is the rate at which it takes to travel that distant. So if i converted 1 mph to kmph it would be 1.6 because it takes a little quicker acceleration to reach 1 km than m. cuz km is longer than mi


----> = Mile
---------> = Km

Ahh Im confused now again lol. My brain doesnt understand why 1 mph would be .62 kmph because if you go ----> this distance per h which is a mile but then convert it to km wouldnt u have gone less in km because km is a bigger number.. lol I know im wrong but i can't see it the correct way lol someone help
