min km to min mile

To convert minutes per kilometer (min/km) to minutes per mile (min/mi), you can follow these step-by-step instructions:

Step 1: Understand the conversion factor
– The conversion factor between kilometers and miles is 1 kilometer = 0.621371 miles.

Step 2: Determine the conversion factor for time
– Since we are converting a rate (minutes per distance), the conversion factor for time will be the reciprocal of the conversion factor for distance.
– Therefore, the conversion factor for time is 1 minute = 1/0.621371 minutes (approximately 1.60934 minutes).

Step 3: Set up the conversion equation
– Write down the given value in min/km and set it up as a fraction.
– For example, if the given value is 5 min/km, write it as 5 min/km.

Step 4: Multiply by the conversion factor
– Multiply the given value by the conversion factor to cancel out the km unit and obtain the value in min/mi.
– Using the example from step 3, multiply 5 min/km by 1.60934 minutes/km:
5 min/km * 1.60934 minutes/km = 8.0467 min/mi (approximately)

Step 5: Round the result (if necessary)
– Depending on the desired level of precision, round the result to the appropriate number of decimal places.
– In this case, rounding the result from step 4 to two decimal places gives us 8.05 min/mi.

Therefore, 5 min/km is approximately equal to 8.05 min/mi.
