*Apr 8, 2002 7:06 AM* | | can someone post the basic formula to convert TT times to speed. Thanks. |

*Apr 8, 2002 7:15 AM* | | MPH ~=.62125 X KPH |

*Apr 8, 2002 7:17 AM* | | miles / hours
miles / (minutes x 60) |
| **Huh?** | Kerry
*Apr 8, 2002 5:07 PM* | | So if I ride a 10 mile time trial in 25 minutes, my speed is 10/(25*60) = .0067? Perhaps you should double check your equation? Like (milesx60)/minutes ? |

*Apr 8, 2002 7:17 AM* | | S = D/T |
| **re: converting time to MPH or KPH** | Len J
*Apr 8, 2002 7:18 AM* | | (Distance Times 60 Minutes) divided by (Actual time in minutes)
So for Example:
Distance 25 miles
Time 64.2 minutes
Speed would be (25 X 60)/64.2=23.36mph

MPH stands for Miles per Hour or (miles/hour)
Take your distance and divide it by the time. Be sure to convert minutes into hours.
Use dimensional analysis:
1 hr = 60 min
so if you have the time in minute.
mile/(min/60)=MPH
should give you MPH. For KPH just switch out Miles for Kilometers |

*Apr 8, 2002 7:27 PM* | | Don't forget the seconds too. To add in the seconds use this formula
MPH=mile/(min/60+sec/3600) |
