A glacier advances at 7 × 10−6
cm/s. How far will it move in 3.7 y?
Answer in units of cm. I have calculated that there are 31,449,600 seconds in a year. I multiplied 31,449,600 by 7 × 10−6 and got 2201.472. Then I multiplied that by 3.7 and got 8145.4464. I submitted that answer but it was wrong. Can someone help me?

  1. d=v*time
    = 7E-6 cm/s *3.7yr*365days/yr*23hrs/day*3600sec/hr*

    Put this in your google search window:
    7E-6 * 3.7 *365 *23 *3600 =

    I get almost eight meters in that time
