Question #61842

The average speed of the International Space Station as it orbits the earth is 7710 m/s. What is this speed in miles per hour? (1 mile = 1.61 km)

Expert's answer

7710 m/s = 7.71 km/s

mile = 1.61 km => we need to transfer km/s to miles/s

7.71 miles / 1.61 = 4.79 miles

So speed in miles per second:

v = 4.79 miles/s

mile = 1.61 km => we need to transfer km/s to miles/s

7.71 miles / 1.61 = 4.79 miles

So speed in miles per second:

v = 4.79 miles/s
