Solution: The distance from Earth to the Moon is approximately 240,000 mi.Earth travels around the Sun at an average speed of 29.783  km/s. Convert this speed to miles per hour.

Solution: The distance from Earth to the Moon is approximately 240,000 mi.Earth travels around the Sun at an average speed of 29.783  km/s. Convert this speed to miles per hour.

Problem

The distance from Earth to the Moon is approximately 240,000 mi.

Earth travels around the Sun at an average speed of 29.783  km/s. Convert this speed to miles per hour.

Solution

When transforming one unit to another, recall the conversion factors and/or constants that will be used in the calculation.

Given:

29.783 km/s mi/hr


First, convert kilometer (km) to miles (mi) and then seconds (s) to hours (hr):
