# Convert meter / hour to yard / second

Learn how to convert 1 meter / hour to yard / second step by step.

## Calculation Breakdown

Set up the equation
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{meter}{hour}\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(\dfrac{yard}{second}\right)$$
Define the base values of the selected units in relation to the SI unit $$\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)$$
$$\text{Left side: 1.0 } \left(\dfrac{meter}{hour}\right) = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{1.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{1.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}$$
$$\text{Right side: 1.0 } \left(\dfrac{yard}{second}\right) = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.9144\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.9144\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}$$
Insert known values into the conversion equation to determine $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{meter}{hour}\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(\dfrac{yard}{second}\right)$$
$$\text{Insert known values } =>$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{1.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}} \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.9144}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)}$$
$$\text{Or}$$
$$1.0 \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{1.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.9144} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}$$
$$\text{Cancel SI units}$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{1.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.9144} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$\dfrac{1.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 0.9144$$
Switch sides
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 0.9144 = \dfrac{1.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}$$
Isolate $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
Multiply both sides by $$\left(\dfrac{1.0}{0.9144}\right)$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 0.9144 \times \dfrac{1.0}{0.9144} = \dfrac{1.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}} \times \dfrac{1.0}{0.9144}$$
$$\text{Cancel}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{0.9144}} \times \dfrac{1.0}{{\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{0.9144}}} = \dfrac{1.0 \times 1.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3} \times 0.9144}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{1.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3} \times 0.9144}$$
Rewrite equation
$$\dfrac{1.0}{10^{3}}\text{ can be rewritten to }10^{-3}$$
$$\text{Rewrite}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{10^{-3}}{3.6 \times 0.9144}$$
Solve $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\approx0.0003037815\approx3.0378 \times 10^{-4}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{meter}{hour}\right)\approx{\color{rgb(20,165,174)} 3.0378 \times 10^{-4}}\left(\dfrac{yard}{second}\right)$$
