how to convert 60km/h into m/s
When you're new to this, I think it's easiest to do step by step 60 km/hr = 60,000 m/hr, because 1 km = 1,000 m = 60,000/60 m/min, because 1 hour = 60 minutes = 1,000 m/min = 1,000/60 m/sec, because 1 minute = 60 seconds = .... m/sec
You can multiply 60 Km/h by 5/18 to convert into m/s
Yes ... now explain why your methods work. We don't like black boxes.
oh 1KM = 1000m, and 1hr = 3600 seconds I hope that makes it clear
Thanks for your help!
Kylie did you get why i multiplied by 5/18?
No I didn't do it that way. Where did that come from?
we have KM/hour 1 KM=1000 m 1 hour= 3600 seconds so 1 KM/hour= 1000m/3600 seconds or 1KM/hour= 10/36 m/sec or 1 km/hour= 5/18 m/sec so to convert km/hour into m/s , multiply by 5/18
I got it. thanks I didn't break it all the way down.
i think this way is conveniece \[60(km/h)\times(1h/3600s)\times(1000m/1km)\]
