# Speedy Conversions

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed to help students convert speeds from meters per second (m/s) to kilometers per hour (km/h). It provides a brief formula at the top for converting these units, stating that 1 m/s is equivalent to 3.6 km/h. Students are then presented with a list of ten different speeds in meters per second, and their task is to convert each speed into kilometers per hour using the given formula. This task not only tests their ability to use the formula correctly but also reinforces their understanding of unit conversion within the context of velocity.

The purpose of this worksheet is to familiarize students with the practical application of converting different units of speed, which is a crucial skill in physics and everyday calculations. It teaches students how to systematically apply a conversion formula to change meters per second into kilometers per hour-a common requirement in scientific and engineering contexts. This exercise also helps students enhance their numerical multiplication skills, as they need to multiply each value by 3.6. By practicing these conversions, students develop greater confidence and accuracy in handling real-world problems involving rates of travel.
