`V = w ^3*C`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Warp Speed** calculator translates Warp Speed into common velocity units such as miles per hour.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Enter the following:

- (
**w**) Warp Factor

**Velocity(V):** The calculator returns the velocity associated with the warp speed in multiple units including:

- miles per hour
- kilometers per hour
- Mach (speed of sound)
- C (multiples of the speed of light)

Warp Speed is an exponential velocity scale. The formula for velocity from warp speed is as follows:

where:

- V is the velocity computed from warp
- C is the speed of light: 186,000 miles per second.
- w is the warp.

The Warp Speed formula is based on the fictional series Star Trek. However, it is a useful (exponential) scale for measuring speed in relationship to astronomical distances, and works well with the limitations of traveling within one quadrant of the galaxy.

You can use Warp Speeds in calculating the time to travel from Earth to parts of the galaxy by clicking **ASTRO TRAVEL TIME**.
