Hi, I'm Charlie Kasov and this is how to do the factor label method to convert time. Now the factor label method is pretty simple if you follow the instructions very carefully. So let's say we have 2.4 revolutions per second. We want to find revolutions per minute. So all the factor label method tells you to do is to just put the units that you want to convert in parenthesis. So for example, we know that there are 60 seconds in a minute. So, we can convert by saying okay, we have seconds, seconds we cross both out. So now we do 2.4 times 60, which is 144, and seconds is gone, minutes, so it's 144 revolutions per minute. And that's it, that is how you use the factor label method to convert time.
