# Convert inch / (minute • second) to galileo

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

## Calculation Breakdown

Set up the equation
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{inch}{minute \times second}\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(galileo\right)$$
Define the base values of the selected units in relation to the SI unit $$\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)$$
$$\text{Left side: 1.0 } \left(\dfrac{inch}{minute \times second}\right) = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0}\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0}\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
$$\text{Right side: 1.0 } \left(galileo\right) = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 10^{-2}\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 10^{-2}\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
Insert known values into the conversion equation to determine $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{inch}{minute \times second}\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(galileo\right)$$
$$\text{Insert known values } =>$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0}} \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 10^{-2}}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)}$$
$$\text{Or}$$
$$1.0 \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 10^{-2}} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
$$\text{Cancel SI units}$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 10^{-2}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$\dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 10^{-2}$$
Cancel factors on both sides
$$\text{Cancel factors}$$
$$\dfrac{2.54 \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{10^{-2}}}}{60.0} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{10^{-2}}}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$$\dfrac{2.54}{60.0} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
Switch sides
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{2.54}{60.0}$$
Solve $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\approx0.0423333333\approx4.2333 \times 10^{-2}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{inch}{minute \times second}\right)\approx{\color{rgb(20,165,174)} 4.2333 \times 10^{-2}}\left(galileo\right)$$
