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 want to convert from min/km to min/mi, we need to consider the distance conversion factor as well as the time conversion factor.

– The time conversion factor is the reciprocal of the distance conversion factor, as time is inversely proportional to distance.

– Therefore, the time conversion factor is 1 minute = 1/0.621371 minutes.

Step 3: Set up the conversion equation

– To convert min/km to min/mi, we’ll use the conversion equation:

min/mi = (min/km) * (time conversion factor)

Step 4: Perform the conversion

– Multiply the given value in min/km by the time conversion factor to obtain the equivalent value in min/mi.

Example:

Let’s say we have a value of 5 min/km and we want to convert it to min/mi.

min/mi = (5 min/km) * (1/0.621371 min)

min/mi = 8.04672 min/mi

Therefore, 5 min/km is equivalent to approximately 8.04672 min/mi.

Note: The conversion factor used in Step 2 is an approximation. The exact conversion factor is a recurring decimal, but for practical purposes, the rounded value is commonly used.
