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.

Speed conversion question

Postby Sammutin » Sun Sep 16, 2012 1:37 am

I'm a jogger and I want to convert my speed from min/km to km/h. The problem is, that my speed is in min:sec format (like 4 min 56 sec/km), not in "full units", where is two digits (like 4,98 min). The speed conversion uses this "full unit", if you understand what I mean. It would be nice that it (min/km) would understand seconds too. Now I first have to calculate my speed to seconds, and then I can convert it to km/h.

Is there a faster way to do this?

Thank you for the idea, I understand what you mean. Currently our site only provides conversion from one unit to another, conversion from combined units ("4 min 56 sec" or "10 ft 3 in") is not supported. We'll think about adding this possibility in the future, but I'm afraid I can't promise this to be implemented soon.

For now I can only suggest doing what you already do - converting the time to seconds first, and then converting the speed.
