1. The conversion of speed of 8 kilometers per month to inches per hour is 438

### What is speed?

Speed of an object can be defines as the magnitude of the change of its position over time or the magnitude of the change of its position per  unit time.
It is also a scalar quantity, this means that the quantity has magnitude but no direction.
From the information given, we have the speed to be;
8km/ month
Note that;
1km = 39370. 1 inches
Then 8km = x inches
Cross multiply
x = 39370. 1 × 8
x = 314, 960. 8 inches
1 month = 24 hours × 30 = 720 hours
Speed in inches per hour = 314, 960. 8/ 720
Speed in inches per hour = 437. 45
Speed in inches per hour = 438
Thus, the conversion of speed of 8 kilometers per month to inches per hour is 438
