That term comes from 0.5 times the conversion factor for mph^3 to (ft/sec)^3 divided by the definition factor for horsepower = 550 lbsft/sec.
conversion factor:
mph * 5280 ft/mile / 3600 seconds/hr = ft/sec.
The 375 value assumes a mile is only 5153 ft.

Three of my reference texts use the 375 value.I made a leap of faith that the Ph.Ds had checked their own work.Apologize for the trouble.
