Choose one or more conversion factors that can best be used to convert 50 (km)/(Myr)(kilometers per million years) to (cm)/(yr) (centimeters per year). (100 cm)/(1 m) (1 Myr)/(1000000yr) (1000 m)/(1 km) (1 km)/(1000 m) (1min)/(60sec) (60 min)/(1 hr) (1hr)/(60 min) Now convert 50 (km)/(Myr)to _______(cm)/(yr). (cm)/(yr)
