12.5 ft/s → V(mph)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in miles per hour:

V(mph) = 12.5 ft/s × 0.68181818181818 mph

V(mph) = 8.5227272727273 mph

The final result is:

12.5 ft/s → 8.5227272727273 mph

We conclude that 12.5 feet per second is equivalent to 8.5227272727273 miles per hour:
