## How to convert feet per hour to feet per minute (ft/h to ft/m)

The formula for converting feet per hour to feet per minute is: ft/m = ft/h × 0.0166666666666667. To calculate the foot per hour value in feet per minute first substitute the foot per hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 foot per hour in feet per minute we follow these steps:

ft/m = ft/h × 0.0166666666666667

ft/m = 1 × 0.0166666666666667

ft/m = 0.0166666666666667

In other words, 1 foot per hour is equal to 0.0166666666666667 feet per minute.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 8 feet per hour to feet per minute is:

1. Understand the conversion formula: ft/m = ft/h × 0.0166666666666667
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 8 for ft/h so the formula becomes: ft/m = 8 × 0.0166666666666667
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 8 × 0.0166666666666667 = 0.1333333333333336 ft/m

In summary, 8 feet per hour is equal to 0.1333333333333336 feet per minute.

## Converting feet per minute to feet per hour

In order to convert the other way around i.e. feet per minute to feet per hour, you would use the following formula: ft/h = ft/m × 60. To convert feet per minute to feet per hour first substitute the foot per minute value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 foot per minute in feet per hour we follow these steps:

ft/h = ft/m × 60

ft/h = 1 × 60

ft/h = 60

Or in other words, 1 foot per minute is equal to 60 feet per hour.

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### What is a Foot Per Hour?

Feet per hour (ft/hr) is a unit of linear velocity measurement. It represents the rate at which an object or particle travels a distance of one foot in one hour. Feet per hour is used to quantify extremely slow speeds or rates of movement over extended time intervals.
To provide a detailed example of feet per hour, let's consider a scenario where a glacier is slowly advancing. If the glacier moves forward by a distance of 10 feet in one hour, then its velocity would be 10 ft/hr. This means that the glacier is advancing at a rate of 10 feet per hour.
Feet per hour is typically used in situations where very slow or gradual movements are involved, such as geological processes, long-term measurements, or specialized applications.
In geological studies or land surveying, feet per hour can be relevant for monitoring the movement of tectonic plates, the slow creep of landslides, or the gradual shifting of geological features. It allows for the measurement and observation of these processes over extended time periods.
Feet per hour can also find applications in specialized fields, such as precision engineering or scientific research. In experiments that require extremely slow and controlled movements, such as the positioning of sensitive instruments or delicate components, feet per hour can be used to describe the desired velocity.
It's important to note that feet per hour can be converted to other units of velocity. For example, 1 ft/hr is approximately equal to 0.0000847 feet per second (ft/s) or 0.0001263 miles per hour (mph).
In summary, feet per hour (ft/hr) is a unit of linear velocity measurement, representing the rate at which an object or particle travels a distance of one foot in one hour. It is used to quantify extremely slow speeds or rates of movement over extended time intervals. Feet per hour can be relevant in geological studies, precision engineering, or other specialized applications where very gradual movements need to be measured or observed.

### What is a Foot Per Minute?

Feet per minute (ft/min) is a unit of linear velocity measurement. It represents the rate at which an object or particle travels a distance of one foot in one minute. Feet per minute is used to quantify slower speeds or rates of movement over longer time intervals.
To provide a detailed example of feet per minute, let's consider a scenario where a conveyor belt moves objects at a constant speed. If the objects are transported a distance of 50 feet in one minute, then the velocity of the conveyor belt would be 50 ft/min. This means that the objects are being transported at a rate of 50 feet per minute.
While not as commonly used as feet per second, feet per minute can find applications in certain contexts where slower speeds or extended durations are involved.
In industrial settings, feet per minute can be relevant for conveyors, assembly lines, or material handling systems. It allows for the measurement and control of the speed at which objects are transported or processed.
Feet per minute can also be used in specialized applications that involve slower rates of movement or flow. For example, in ventilation systems or air conditioning, the velocity of air movement or airflow can be expressed in terms of feet per minute.
It's important to note that feet per minute can be converted to other units of velocity. For example, 1 ft/min is approximately equal to 0.00508 meters per second (m/s) or 0.01136 miles per hour (mph).
In summary, feet per minute (ft/min) is a unit of linear velocity measurement, representing the rate at which an object or particle travels a distance of one foot in one minute. It is commonly used to quantify slower speeds or rates of movement over extended durations. Feet per minute can be relevant in industrial, ventilation, and airflow applications where slower velocities need to be measured or controlled.
