    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.
