To measure it accurately use the longest measuring tape you can find (I have one that measures 30m). Extend it fully and starting from the beginning point lay this in the direction you wish to measure the road. At the 30m mark on the tape lay a tooth pick, or some other item with a sharp point, on the road with the point level with the 30m mark on the tape. Now without moving the toothpick hold the tape and walk in the direction you wish to measure until the beginning of the tape is level with the toothpick (check that this is accurate - best if you have somebody helping you).Now take the tooth pick and again place it on the road level with the 30m mark on the tape. Repeat this another 31 times and then on the next time measure only one metre. This will have taken you 1000 metres along the road.
Alternatively, make your self a wheel of circumference say one metre out of some suitable material (plywood). Attach an axle at the centre with a handle so that this wheel can easily revolve on the axle. Put a mark on the wheel at the circumference so that when you place the wheel on the road with this mark at your starting point on the road and then walk forward, you will be able to count the number of times it has rotated as you walk along in a straight line. When the wheel has completed 1000 rotations (with this mark touching the road) this is the 1 Kilometre distance measured.

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
goodluck!

### Does distance show kilometers or miles?

On a digital display the default in U.S. is miles. Refer to your owner's manual or call dealer if you need to change it. A km is .6 of a mile, so just drive about 10 blocks (around a mile). If the odometer registers around 1 unit more it's probably miles, if it says close to 2 then it's probably km.

### The distance of the Sun and Mercury

Assuming you mean the distance from earth to the sun and earth to mercury, the are as follows, according to Wikipedia: The mean distance from earth to the sun is 149,597,890 km.

The mean distance from mercury to the sun is 57,909,715 km. Extrapolating, by subtracting the two distances, one gets 91, 688, 715 km as the mean distance from earth to mercury assuming that the planets were in alignment on the same side of the sun.

However, with mercury on the opposite side of the sun from earth then the distance from earth to mercury would increase by 57,909,175 km over the earth's distance to the sun to 207,007,965 km.

I hope this helps you with your problem with the 1987 Alpine V6 though I can't imagine how.

### How long does it take to drive 400 km

How long it takes to drive any distance depends on your average speed. Whatever is your average speed, divide that into the distance you have to travel. For instance, if your speed is 100 kilometers per hour and you need to go 400 kilometers, it will take you (400 km/100 kmph=) four hours. Always be sure to use the same units of measurement, English or metric, in your arithmetic.

### When there is decrease of 5 km/hr in the usual uniform speed of train, it takes 4 hrs. more than the usual time for covering the distance of 400 km. Find the usual speed of the train.

Let X be the time taken when train is moving in its normal speed.

Y be the normal speed of the train.

Speed = distance/time

that is X = 400 / Y

or Y = 400 / X --------- (1)

When speed is decreased by 5 km/hr time increases by 4 hour

that is X + 4 = 400 / Y -5

= X + 4 = 400 X / 400 - 5X ( substitute Y = 400 /X we get this equation)

on solving we get 5X^2 + 20x - 1600 = 0

we get two solutions X = 16 and -20

-20 is neglected (time cannot be negative)

substitute X in equation (1)

Y = 400 / 16 = 25 km/hr

So normal speed of train is 25 km/hr.
