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.

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
