32km/hr > m/s

Like how do you convert that?

**Henry**, Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 7:52pmV = 32km/h = 32000m/3600s = 8.89 m/s.

32km = 32,000 m.

1h = 3600s.

**Damon**, Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 8:22pmanything/divided by the same thing does not change anything really but the name of it

so multiplying by (1000 m/ 1 km ) for example

does not change the amount, just its name

so

(32 km/hr)(1 hr/3600s)(1000 m/km)

hr cancels, km cancels

comes out in m/s
