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

The formula for converting feet per minute to meters per hour is: m/h = ft/m × 18.288. To calculate the foot per minute value in meters per hour first substitute the foot per minute value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 foot per minute in meters per hour we follow these steps:

m/h = ft/m × 18.288

m/h = 1 × 18.288

m/h = 18.288

In other words, 1 foot per minute is equal to 18.288 meters per hour.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 6 feet per minute to meters per hour is:

1. Understand the conversion formula: m/h = ft/m × 18.288
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 6 for ft/m so the formula becomes: m/h = 6 × 18.288
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 6 × 18.288 = 109.728 m/h

In summary, 6 feet per minute is equal to 109.728 meters per hour.

## Converting meters per hour to feet per minute

In order to convert the other way around i.e. meters per hour to feet per minute, you would use the following formula: ft/m = m/h × 0.0546806649168854. To convert meters per hour to feet per minute first substitute the meter per hour value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 meter per hour in feet per minute we follow these steps:

ft/m = m/h × 0.0546806649168854

ft/m = 1 × 0.0546806649168854

ft/m = 0.0546806649168854

Or in other words, 1 meter per hour is equal to 0.0546806649168854 feet per minute.

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### 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.

### What is a Meter Per Hour?

Meter per hour is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in hours. It is derived from the fundamental unit of length, the meter, and the unit of time, the hour.
To provide an example, let's consider a car traveling at a speed of 60 meters per hour. This means that for every hour, the car covers a distance of 60 meters. If we extend this example, after 2 hours of continuous travel at this speed, the car would have traveled a total distance of 120 meters.
Meter per hour is not as commonly used as other units of speed, such as meters per second or kilometers per hour, as it represents a relatively slower rate of movement. However, it can find applications in certain scenarios where slower speeds are relevant, such as the movement of heavy machinery or the flow rate of fluids in specific industrial processes.
It's important to note that meter per hour can be converted to other units of speed, such as meters per second or kilometers per hour, using appropriate conversion factors. For example, 1 meter per hour is equivalent to 0.00028 meters per second or approximately 0.001 kilometers per hour.
In summary, meter per hour is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in hours. While not as commonly used as some other speed units, it can be applicable in situations where slower rates of movement are considered.
