You can approximate your age in seconds by multiplying the number of years old you are by 365 days, by 24 hours, by 60 minutes, and by 60 seconds.

12 years = 144 months = about 626 weeks = about 4383 days on average = about 105,190 hours on average = about 6,311,390 minutes on average = 378,683,424 seconds on average (not counting leap seconds)

The downhill skiers' approximate average speed for the 35,000 m course can be calculated by converting the time to seconds (130 seconds) and dividing distance by time. Average speed ≈ 35,000 m / 130 s ≈ 269.23 m/s.

It is approx 1615.4 ms^-1.

639 seconds is just 10 minutes and 39 seconds. So it is a tiny part of a year, approximate 0.002% of a year.

No, that is terrible. Few people run a mile in more than 6 minutes. 5 minutes 30 seconds is about average. The fastst person ran it in 3minutes 58 seconds

12 years = 144 months = about 626 weeks = about 4383 days on average = about 105,190 hours on average = about 6,311,390 minutes on average = 378,683,424 seconds on average (not counting leap seconds)

The race lasts about 2 minutes, give or take a few seconds.

An average year is 365.25 days. I.e. 8766hrs or 525,960 mins, or 31,557,600 seconds

The average lifespan in the US is 78.4 years, which is 41,235,264 minutes, or 2,474,115,840 seconds.

The average speed is the distance divided by the time.3500 meters / 130 seconds = approximately 26.9 m/secConverting to kilometers/hour equals 96.9 km/hr (or about 60.2 mph)
