Spike's Calculators

Calculate the time it takes to travel a certain distance in nautical miles based on a speed in metres per second.

Metres per Second/Nautical Miles

- enter the distance in nautical miles
- the speed in metres per second

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

time = distance ÷ speed

one nautical mile (nmi) = 1.852 kilometres (km) one nautical mile (nmi) = 1.15077944802354 miles (mi) one nautical mile (nmi) = 1852 metres (m) one metre per second (m/s) = 3.28083989501312 feet per second (ft/s) one metre per second (m/s) = 1.94384449244061 knots International (kn) one hour (hr) = 60 minutes (min) one hour (hr) = 3600 seconds (sec)

How long will it take to travel 677.54 nautical miles at a speed of 12 metres per second?

First convert the nautical miles to metres;

677.54 * 1852 = 1254804.08

677.54 nautical miles equal 1254804.08 metres

Divide the distance of 1254804.08 metres by the speed of 12 metres per second to get the time in seconds;

1254804.08 ÷ 12 = 104567.01

It will take 104567.01 seconds to travel the 677.54 nautical miles at a speed of 12 metres per second.

Convert the 104567.01 seconds to hours by dividing by 3600 ( there are 3600 seconds in one hour);

104567.01 ÷ 3600 = 29.0464

It will take 29.0464 hours to travel the 677.54 nautical miles at a speed of 12 metres per second. 29 hr - 2 min - 47 sec
