Physics conversion

  1. Mar 5, 2005 #1
    I wanted to know how to covert mm/s to m/s. This units are associated with the drift velocity of electrons.
    Thanks :confused:

    ...divide by 1000. There are 1000 millimeters in a meter ("m" stands for "milli"). In general, you can do unit conversions on google or Unicalc.

    Do a "factor label method"

    [tex]\frac{mm}{s}*\frac{1 meter}{1000 mm}[/tex]

    Then cross out the mm's.
