#### Calculator

1. enter the distance in kilometres
2. the speed in metres per second

#### Results

1. the distance in kilometres converted to miles
2. the metres per second converted to feet per second
3. the time in minutes
4. the time in decimal hours
5. the time in hour, minute, and second format

##### Formula
```time = distance ÷ speed
```
##### Conversions
```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)
```
##### Example Calculation
`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```
