## The following conversions occur frequently in physics and are very useful. (a) Use 1 mi = 5280 ft and 1 h = 3600 s to convert 60 mph to units of ft>s. (b) The acceleration of a freely falling object is 32 ft>s2. Use 1 ft = 30.48 cm to express this acceleration in units of m>s2. (c) The density of water is 1.0 g>cm3. Convert this density to units of kg>m3.

## A certain fuel-efficient hybrid car gets gasoline mileage of 55.0 mpg (miles per gallon). (a) If you are driving this car in Europe and want to compare its mileage with that of other European cars express this mileage in km>L 1L = liter2. Use the conversion factors in Appendix E. (b) If this car’s gas tank holds 45 L how many tanks of gas will you use to drive 1500 km?

## While driving in an exotic foreign land you see a speed limit sign that reads 180 000 furlongs per fortnight. How many miles per hour is this? (One furlong is 18 mile and a fortnight is 14 days. A furlong originally referred to the length of a plowed furrow.)
