2. the speed in feet per second

#### Results

1. the distance in nautical miles converted to feet
2. the distance in nautical miles converted to kilometres
3. the distance in nautical miles converted to miles
4. the feet per second converted to metres per second
5. the feet per second converted to knots
6. the time in seconds
7. the time in minutes

##### Formula
```time = distance ÷ speed
```
##### Conversions
```one nautical mile (nmi) = 1.852 kilometres (km)
one nautical mile (nmi) = 1.15077944802354 miles (mi)
one nautical mile (nmi) =  6076.11548556429 feet (ft)
one foot per second (ft/sec) = 0.3048 metres per second (m/sec)
one foot per second (ft/s) = 0.592483801295897 knots International (kn)
one hour (hr) = 60 minutes (min)
one hour (hr) =  3600 seconds (sec)
```
##### Example Calculation
`How long will it take to travel 1200 nautical miles at a speed of 44 feet per second?`
`First convert the nautical miles to feet;`
`1200 *  6076.11548556429 = 7291338.58`
`1200 nautical miles equal 7291338.58 feet`

`Divide the distance of  7291338.58 feet by the speed of 44 feet per second to get the time in seconds;`
`7291338.58 ÷ 44 = 165712.24`
`It will take 165712.24 seconds to travel the 1200 nautical miles at a speed of 44 feet per second.`

`Convert the 165712.24 seconds to hours by dividing by 3600 ( there are 3600 seconds in one hour);`
`165712.24 ÷ 3600 = 46.031`
```It will take 46.031 hours to travel the 1200 nautical miles at a speed of 44 feet per second.
46 hr - 1 min - 52 sec```
