AAT ICAS vision for measuring speed

measuring speed in terms of a meter solana scale

a basic measure can be used to explain many scenarios of measure in terms of whole or simple numbers . toward this basic units of distance and time are useful for measuring rates of speed . the measure of 'meter per second' ( m/s ) is readily compared in terms of basic concepts of 'meter' and 'second' . the measure of 'meter solana' ( m⋅so ) facilitates ready comparison of speeds with reference to decimalized representations of a coordinated day of 86400 second .

symbol note: 1 tikochron (tiXn) is equal to 0.864 second (s). 1 meter solana (m·so) is an alternative representation of equal quantity of 1 meter per tik (m/tiXn) [ Inter-Dial Clock, Integrated Chronological Applications System, Alliance for the Advancement of Technology, aatideas.org ]

from AAT ICAS table 2092.1 (determining IDC conversion factors), the scale factors for meter solana (m·so) are:

1 meter solana (m·so) is 4.166654531 kilometers per hour (km/h)

1 meter solana (m·so) is 2.588998051 miles per hour (mph)


1 kilometer per hour (km/h) is 0.240000699 meter solana (m·so)

1 mile per hour (mph) is 0.386249808 meter solana (m·so)


references to hurricane category comparison are rounded to nearest whole number for ranges of wind speed from the figures for kilometer per hour in the Saffir–Simpson hurricane wind scale (SSHWS).
