We are asked to convert units from kilometers per second to the units of miles per year. To do this, we need a conversion factor that relates the different units involved. We can multiply or divide this particular value to the original measure, depending on what is asked of you. From the literature, we find that 1 mile is equal to 1609 metres and 1000 metres equals 1 kilometre. In addition, we will find that 3600 s is equal to 1 h, 24 h is equal to 1 day and 365 days equals 1 year. We do the conversion in the following way:3.8 km / s ( 1000 m / 1 km ) ( 1 mile / 1609 meters ) ( 3600 s / 1 h ) ( 24 hours / 1 day ) ( 365 days / 1 year ) = 74479055.3 miles per year
