Write out at least 5 relevant conversion factors as fractions that you'll need to convert need to convert units of gallons to units of hours. Assume that a milliliter of water contains 22 drops and you can count drops at a rate of 10 drops per second.


Expert Answer

Step 1

An arithmetical multiplier which is used for converting a quantity expressed in one unit into another equivalent set of units is said to be conversion factor.


1 mL of water contains 22 drops

Rate of drops is 10 drops per second

Step 2

The conversion factor used to convert the 1 gallon to (milliliter) mL is written on the white board:

Step 3

Since, it is given that 1 mL of water contains 22 drops so; the number of d...
