Question # 06, Date : 06-Oct-2019
This post is a part of Project IR Butler 2019-20. Click here for Details


A certain snail can travel at a rate of 1 millimeter per second. A children's storybook author wants to convert this rate to other units to make the description more appealing to children.

Based on the given information, select for m/day the closest to the equivalent speed of the snail in meters per day and select for km/wk the closest to the equivalent speed of the snail in kilometers per week. Note that 1 meter = 1,000 millimeters and 1 kilometer = 1,000 meters.

Make only two selections, one in each column.

m/day-----------km/wk
0.6------------------0.6
4.2------------------4.2
29.4-----------------29.4
86.4-----------------86.4
604.2----------------604.2

carbazzy,
The way would be ...

the speed is 1mm/sec....
First convert sec in to day..
There are 24 hrs, and each hr has 60 minutes, which in turn have 60 secs each..
so number of secs in a day = 24*60*60=86400 secs..

So 1mm/sec = 1*86400mm per 86400secs = 86400mm per day ..
Now 1000mm = 1 m, so \(86400mm = \frac{86400}{1000}m=86.4m\)
Thus 86400mm/day=86.4m/day

Similarly you can find km per week...
Now there are 7 days in a week, so 86.4m/day = 86.4*7/7day=604.8m/week..
Convert m into km = (604.8/1000)/week=0.6048km/week
