Wanted - Mathematica demonstration showing mi/min to km/hr conversion
Hello, I am trying to develop a Mathematica demonstration which has a "runner" which proceeds along a path (indoor track) over the course of an hour. A simple marker which moves slowly along a course which is marked with mile and km designations. The problem I am trying to demonstrate is the following: Mary Decker has run a mile on an indoor track in 4 min 17.6 sec. What was her speed in km/hr? Is there a way to represent a student running a track? Perhaps the best way to show this is a marker along a straight path which is about 22.49 km? With mile and km demarcations? Thanks, Diana M.
