    Earth and sun

    Guys is my logic correct? If Earth travels around the Sun in 29.78km/s and I have to calculate how long will it take to travel 1km I did following:
    1s / 29.78 = 0.03358 (to 5 d.p)
    I think it's ok but I would like to get confirmation on this.
    Thank you.

    1 km / 29.78 km/s = 0.03358 s
    That's correct.
