    To convert miles per hour to feet per second, which conversion factor would not be used?

    a. 1 hr/60 min
    b. 1 min/60 sec
    c. 5280 ft/1 mi
    d. 1 mi/5280 ft

  • Math - ,

    mi/hr * 1hr/60min * 1min/60sec * 5280ft/mi

    Note that the units all cancel out, leaving ft/sec

    Actually all of the factors will work, if you divide by 1mi/5280ft.
    However, since one usually wants to multiply, I'd say (d) would not be used.
