# Convert inch / (hour • second) to galileo

Learn how to convert 1 inch / (hour • second) to galileo step by step.

## Calculation Breakdown

Set up the equation
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{inch}{hour \times second}\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(galileo\right)$$
Define the base values of the selected units in relation to the SI unit $$\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)$$
$$\text{Left side: 1.0 } \left(\dfrac{inch}{hour \times second}\right) = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
$$\text{Right side: 1.0 } \left(galileo\right) = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 10^{-2}\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 10^{-2}\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
Insert known values into the conversion equation to determine $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{inch}{hour \times second}\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(galileo\right)$$
$$\text{Insert known values } =>$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}} \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 10^{-2}}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)}$$
$$\text{Or}$$
$$1.0 \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 10^{-2}} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
$$\text{Cancel SI units}$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 10^{-2}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$\dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 10^{-2}$$
Cancel factors on both sides
$$\text{Cancel factors}$$
$$\dfrac{2.54 \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{10^{-2}}}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{10^{-2}}}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$$\dfrac{2.54}{3.6 \times 10^{3}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
Switch sides
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{2.54}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}$$
Rewrite equation
$$\dfrac{1.0}{10^{3}}\text{ can be rewritten to }10^{-3}$$
$$\text{Rewrite}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{10^{-3} \times 2.54}{3.6}$$
Solve $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\approx0.0007055556\approx7.0556 \times 10^{-4}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{inch}{hour \times second}\right)\approx{\color{rgb(20,165,174)} 7.0556 \times 10^{-4}}\left(galileo\right)$$
