# Distance calculator

This calculator helps you estimate the distance travelled after a certain time of constant speed. It also converts to alternative speed units: mile/hr, km/h, m/s, mach, ...

### 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 = `26.4 m/s`
• Speed = `2.64 * 101 m/s (scientific)`
• Speed = `26.39 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 = `95 000 m/hr`
• Speed = `86.6 ft/sec`
• ### Time

• Time = `57 600 secs` = `16.0 hrs`
• = `57.6 * 103 sec(s)`
• = `960 min(s)`
• = `16 hr(s)`
• ### Speed x Time = Distance

• Distance = `1 520 000 meter`
• = `4.99 * 106 ft`
• = `1.66 * 106 yard`
• = `1.52 * 106 m`
• = `1.52 * 103 km`
• = `944.49 mile`
• = `820.73 nautical mile`
