#### Results

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

9. the time in an hour, minute, and second format

##### 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) = 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)
```
##### Example Calculation
`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```
