Spike's Calculators

Calculate the time it takes to ride, walk, swim, or run a certain distance in kilometres based on a speed in metres per second.

Metres per Second/Kilometres

- enter the distance in kilometres
- the speed in metres per second

- the distance in kilometres converted to miles
- the metres per second converted to feet per second
- the time in minutes
- the time in decimal hours
- the time in hour, minute, and second format

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
