    How I Convert Minutes/mile To Minutes/kilometer?
    When I Run I Do 8 Minutes Per Mile, How Can I Pass To Minutes Per Kilometer?
    Thanks, Eze

    There are 1.6 kilometers/mile

    minutes/mile / 1.6 kilometers/mile = minutes/kilometer

    8 / 1.6 = 5 minutes/kilometer

          94.2 Kilometers
          or 58.875 miles

            The maths here is incomplete. Example: converting a pace of (for example) 9 minutes and 57 seconds per mile:

            9.57 / 1.6 = 5.98...

            Which is not so useful.

            May I suggest the following procedure (particularly useful if you are going to do this in a spreadsheet for tracking, say, running training):

            1. Note that a more accurate conversion factor is 1.60934
            2. Convert your pace in minutes & seconds to a pace in seconds
            3. Divide the pace in seconds by the factor
            4. Convert your pace in seconds back into minutes and seconds

            Using the 9'57" pace given above, then:

            (9*60)+57 = 597
            597 / 1.60934 = 370.95952
            370.95952 / 60 = 6.18265

            Hence, approximate pace is 6 minutes and 18 seconds per kilometer.

              I agree with most of your comments, but there is a problem in the final step. The answer is 6.18265 minutes, but that is NOT the same 6 minutes 18 seconds.

              Note that 6 minutes is 360 s, subtract from 370.95952, and note the actual residual is about 10.96 s, ie correct answer is 00:06:10.96/km.

              The conversion factor you gave is more than accurate enough on a calculator, but if automating on a computer, note that 1.609344 km/mile is exact.

                I rode my bike (around our neighborhood) at a moderate pace for 25.42 min and I need to convert to miles. Our school is tracking our miles.
                Thanks

                  try this... 6'14" and you will see

                    Re: How To Convert Minutes/mile

                    Can anyone tell me how many minutes does it take to go a mile if your speed is 40 mph?

                      Re: How To Convert Minutes/mile

                      40 mph * 1 hr / 60 min = 0.6667 mi/min

                      1 mi / 0.6667 mi/min = 1.5 mins

                        OK, can anyone tell me a quick conversion to work out "Machine Hours" ie: Forklift Hours to be converted to the equivelant in Kilometres ??

                          1 mile/40 mph x 60 min/h = 1.5 min

                            A rectangular school ground is 150 m long and 100 m wide.

                            1.)What is its perimeter


                            2.)A runner wants to run 5 km. How many times must he go around it completely?


                            3.)If the speed of the runner is 6 minutes per km, how many minutes will it take him to make one round?


                            pls.. help i don't understand this lesson

                              What are you having trouble with?. The perimeter of a rectangle includes two lengths and two widths, so 2*(L + W). That should allow you to answer #1

                              For #2, you need to know that 5 km = 5000 m. You either need to convert the 5 km run to meters and divide by the number of meters in the perimeter, or convert perimeter to km and divide 5 km by it.

                              For #3, you need to know the perimeter in kilometers (hint: it is a fraction of a kilometer) and multiply it by 6 min/km.
