# Why does velocity not vary with distance within 10 Mpc?

 P: 1,261 Why does velocity not vary with distance within 10 Mpc? Both responses are good ones above. Just wanted to add that there seems to be lots wrong with your plot---the velocities are also way too large. Remember Hubble's law: $$v \approx H_0 d \approx 70 \textrm{ km/s} \left( \frac{d}{1 \textrm{ Mpc} } \right)$$
