Forum rules
Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Let's first establish the constants we need in order to complete your task:
5,280 feet = 1 mile
3,600 seconds = 1 hour

If we plug the above factors, we can derive your needed answer:
300 ft / second divided by 1 mile / 5,280 feet multiplied by 3,600 seconds / 1 hour = 204.55 miles / hour.
