Scientists have calculated that the Moon's revolution around Earth is increasing by about .015 s per century. At this rate, how long would it take the length of a month to increase by one full day?

  1. Indicate your subject in the "School Subject" box, so those with expertise in the area will respond to the question.

    Assuming s = seconds, converting seconds to days.

    .015 * x = 1 second

    x = 66.67

    66.67 * 60 seconds * 60 minutes * 24 hours = one day
