    dimentional analysis

    THis should be a very easy problem. But i think im going wrong with one of my converstion factors.

    The 1992 world speed record for a bicycle (human powered vehicle) was set by Chris Huber. His time through the measured 200 m stretch was a sizzling 6.509 s, at which he commented, “Cogito ergo zoom!” (I think, therefore I go fast!) In 2001, Sam Whittingham beat Huber's record by 19.0 km/h. What was Whittingham's time through the 200 m?
