Default Get out your calculators!

Utterly bored out of my mind at work so I wanna quiz you all who want to be quized.

If my bow shoots 252fps, how fast is that in mph?

with a steady head wind of 18mph
.
.
.
on a 70 degree day
.
.
.
at 63% humidity
.
.
.
facing south/southeast
.
.
.
on a Tuesday afternoon
