Ok, here is a certain formula and I have to change it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

V = 5.47[tex]\sqrt{h}[/tex]

V is velocity in mph while h is distance in ft.

I need to determine a new constant so that V is in feet per second. How do I go about doing that? Do I just convert V first and then take the constant and multiply it by the numbers that I needed to convert to ft/s?

By the way, h stays the same as just ft.
