How do you convert meters/second to millimeters/hour?

Set up a ratio:

1m : 1s = 100cm : 1s

= 1000mm : 1s

= 1000mm : 1/60 h

= 60 000mm : 1h

Therefore 1m/s is the same as 60 000mm/h. To convert you will need to multiply by 6 000 000. - Sep 10th 2010, 06:30 PMStroodle
As above, except there is 1 000mm in a meter, not 100 000mm. So multiply by 60 000, not 6 000 000. :)

Oops, haha. Shouldn't have bothered to conversion to cm. Will fix :)
