# Velocity Shifters

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is specifically designed to convert speeds from kilometers per hour (km/h) to meters per second (m/s). It provides a clear formula at the top for this conversion, highlighting that 1 km/h is equivalent to approximately 0.27778 m/s. Students are presented with ten different speeds in kilometers per hour and are tasked with using the formula to calculate the corresponding speed in meters per second. This exercise requires students to apply multiplication and division skills, along with a good understanding of the units involved.

The purpose of this worksheet is to teach students how to accurately convert between different units of speed, a common task in physics and various engineering fields. It introduces them to the concept that speed can be expressed in different units and that these units can be converted based on a constant conversion factor. This worksheet also helps students practice their arithmetic skills, particularly in multiplication and division, within a practical context. By engaging with this conversion, students enhance their numerical fluency and gain a better understanding of the relationship between common units of speed measurement.
