    I can give you some conversion factors to use: 12 inches = 1 foot 5280 feet = 1 mile 60 minutes = 1 hour Use these factors to manipulate the units.

    Yes, I have that. It has been so long since I have dealt with this kind of stuff, my issue is putting it in scientific notation.

    That's a bit high. Let's see if we can calculate this: |dw:1359143596831:dw|

    This gives us an answer in miles/hour
