# Which conversion factors are used to multiply to 12 m/s to get kilometers per minute?

60 s = 1 min

1 km = 1000 m

1min = 60 s

1000 m = 1 km

**Solution:**

Given, we have 12 m/s.

Converting m/s to km/ min means that we are converting the units of a given speed from meter per second to kilometer per minute.

This conversion is done by using a conversion factor.

Remember that,

1 km = 1000 m.

To convert m to km, multiply by 1/1000.

1 min = 60 sec.

To convert sec to min, multiply by 1/60.

Substituting, we get,

12(1/1000 /1/60)

= 12(60/10000)

= 12(0.006)

= 0.72 km/min

Therefore, the conversion factors used are 1 km = 1000 m and 1min = 60 s

## Which conversion factors are used to multiply to 12 m/s to get kilometers per minute?

**Summary:**

The conversion factors used are 1 km = 1000 m and 1min = 60 s. 12 m/s is converted as 0.72 km/min.
