# Worksheet on Conversion of Units of Speed

Practice the questions given in the worksheet on conversion of units of speed. The questions are based on converting the speeds from km/hr to m/sec and converting the speeds from m/sec to km/hr.

We know, (i) to convert km/hr to m/sec, multiply by 5/18 and

(ii) to convert m/sec to km/hr, multiply by 18/5.

1. Convert each of the following speed into m/sec:

(i) 72 km/hr

(ii) 12.6 km/hr

(iii) 23.4 km/hr

(iv) 306 km/hr

(v) 38 km/hr

(vi) 54 km/hr

(vii) 81 km/hr

(viii) 14.4 km/hr

2. Convert each of the following speed into km/hr:

(i) 45 m/sec

(ii) 4 m/sec

(iii) 1.5 m/sec

(iv) 2.8 m/sec

(v) 22.5 m/sec

(vi) 120 m/sec

(vii) 840 m/sec

(viii) 6.25 m/sec

3. Express the following speed in m/sec.

(i) 36 km/hr

(ii) 90 km/hr

(iii) 144 km/hr

(iv) 7.2 km/hr

(v) 12.8 km/hr

4. Express the following speed in km/hr.

(i) 15 m/sec

(ii) 10.5 m/sec

(iii) 24 m/sec

(iv) 30 m/sec

(v) 4 ½ m/sec

5. Which is greater – a speed of 24 km/hr or a speed of 12.8 m/sec?

6. Ron covers a distance of 1710 m in 3 minutes. Find his speed in km/hr.

(iv) 10.08 km

(v) 81 km

(vi) 432 km

(vii) 3024 km

(viii) 22.5 km

3. (i) 10 m/sec

(ii) 25 m/sec

(iii) 40 m/sec
