b. Men the length of Pace is unknown till after observation. -In this case, the following plan gives the rate of travel per hour, with the smallest amount of arithmetic.


For statute miles per hour-Observe the number of paces (n) taken in 5.7 seconds : let i be the number of inches (to be subsequently determined at leisure) in a single pace; then


n i is the rate per hour. 100


For geographical miles per hour-The number of seconds to be employed is 5. This formula is therefore very simple, and it is a useful one. (A statute mile is 1760 yards, and a geographical mile is 2025 yards.)
