Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

20 meters in 3 seconds = 20/3 meters per second, i.e. 6.67 meters per second. Now you can go to speed conversion page to find out that it equals to 14.9 mph.

I built and owned an amazing vehicle many years ago.
It was a truck with a J-57 ORIGINAL afterburner set up. 25,000 lbs of thrust!
I made a run one day.
1/2 mile (2,640 feet) and I covered it in 9 seconds. I blew the shoot, the shoot tore off the hind end of the vehicle and I managed to off-road it way past the end of an airport runway. Tore the axels off and some damage. But I was ok.
My question is... How fast was my top end?
1/2 mile covered in 9 seconds.
Many thanks! Sid
