Speed

METRIC (DECIMAL)

Most countries use the Metric System, which uses the measuring units such as meters and grams and adds prefixes like kilo, milli and centi to count orders of magnitude.

  • Speed = 33.3 m/s
  • Speed = 3.33 * 101 m/s (scientific)
  • Speed = 33.33 m/s (engineering)
  • IMPERIAL

    In the USA and UK, the older Imperial system is used, where things are measured in feet, inches and pounds.

  • Speed = 120,000 m/hr
  • Speed = 109 ft/sec
  • Time

  • Time = 86,400 secs = 1.0 day
  • = 86.4 * 103 sec(s)
  • = 1.44 * 103 min(s)
  • = 24 hr(s)
  • = 1 day(s)
  • Speed x Time = Distance

  • Distance = 2,880,000 meter
  • = 9.45 * 106 ft
  • = 3.15 * 106 yard
  • = 2.88 * 106 m
  • = 2.88 * 103 km
  • = 1.79 * 103 mile
  • = 1.56 * 103 nautical mile
