Calculate the time it takes to ride, walk, swim, or run a certain distance in kilometres based on a speed in metres per second.
time = distance ÷ speed
one kilometre (km) = 0.621371192237334 miles (mi) one kilometre (km) = 1000 metres (m) one hour (hr) = 3600 seconds (sec) one metre per minute (m/sec) = 3.28083989501312 feet per minute (ft/sec)
How long will it take to run 10 kilometres at a speed of 2 metres per second?
First, convert the 10 kilometres to metres;
10 * 1000 = 10000
10 kilometres equals 10000 metres
Divide the distance of 10000 metres by the speed of 2 metres per second to get the time in seconds;
10000 ÷ 2 = 5000
It will take 5000 seconds to run the 10 kilometres at a speed of 2 metres per second
Convert to decimal hours by dividing by 3600 (there are 3600 seconds in one hour);
5000 ÷ 3600 = 1.38888
It will take 1.38888 hours to run 10 kilometres at a speed of 2 metres per second. 1 hr - 23 min - 20 sec
