A bird is flying around the world at a rate of 26.4 ft/sec. How many days will it take to complete its journey? (circumference of earth = 25,000 miles)

  • chemistry -

    • Convert 25000 miles into feet.
    (1 mile = 5280 ft)
    • time = distance / speed
    time = ______feet / 26.4 ft/sec = ________sec
    • Convert the seconds into hours
    ( 1 hour = 3600 sec)
    • Convert hours to days
    ( 1 day = 24 hours)
