Homework Statement
A galaxy is observed to be receding from the Sun with a velocity of 7500 km/s.
The distance to the galaxy is determined to be 1.4×10^8 parsecs. From this
observation, what is the value of the Hubble Constant (in km/s/Mpc)?
Not sure if recessional velocity in this equation is in km/s and distance in parsecs. Need help with this.Homework Statement
