How do I convert 112km/h/min to ms^2?

You have 3600 $\frac s {hr} [/tex] and 60 [itex] \frac s {min}$

Do the algebra.

I have had a go at trying to work this out but not sure if my answer is correct. I got a result of 0.5183ms-2. Is this right?

From km/h to m/s you multiply by 1000 and divide by 3600, from m/s to km/h you multiply by 3.6 (3600/1000).

It looks more to me like 0.5185m/s^2, but yes, you have the right idea.
