meters per second bug
by coldfuse on 01/11/02 at 22:41:27

Love your forum...in fact, I refer people here when answering questions at another site.  Tonight, however, I came across:

1 meters/second = 3.5999999999999996 kilometers/hour

Unless an hour is no longer 3600 seconds, should this not read 3.60 kilometers per hour?  I know it is trivial for most applications, and within your seven digit accuracy statement, but it seems just to obvious to ignore!  Thanks. :-X

Yes it should read 3.6, not sure why its not. :)

I will look into that. Thanks for letting me know.
