## How to convert feet per second to meters per minute (ft/s to m/min)

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

m/min = ft/s × 18.288

m/min = 1 × 18.288

m/min = 18.288

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

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 3 feet per second to meters per minute is:

1. Understand the conversion formula: m/min = ft/s × 18.288
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 3 for ft/s so the formula becomes: m/min = 3 × 18.288
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 3 × 18.288 = 54.864 m/min

In summary, 3 feet per second is equal to 54.864 meters per minute.

## Converting meters per minute to feet per second

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

ft/s = m/min × 0.0546806649168854

ft/s = 1 × 0.0546806649168854

ft/s = 0.0546806649168854

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

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### What is a Foot Per Second?

Foot per second (ft/s) 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 second. Foot per second is commonly used to quantify the speed or velocity of objects or the flow rate of fluids.
To provide a detailed example of foot per second, let's consider a moving object, such as a person walking. If a person covers a distance of 5 feet in one second, then their velocity would be 5 ft/s. This means that the person is moving at a speed of 5 feet per second.
Foot per second is widely used in various practical applications, such as transportation, sports, and engineering. It allows for convenient measurement and comparison of speeds in everyday scenarios.
In transportation, foot per second can be used to express the speed of pedestrians, runners, or vehicles traveling at slower speeds. For example, when discussing walking or running speeds, foot per second provides a familiar unit for measuring and understanding human movement.
In sports, foot per second is often used to describe the speed of athletes in disciplines such as track and field, soccer, or basketball. It helps assess performance, analyze sprints or movements, and compare the velocities of different athletes.
Foot per second is also relevant in engineering, particularly in fluid dynamics and flow rate calculations. For instance, when evaluating water flow in pipes or channels, the velocity of the fluid can be expressed in feet per second.
It's important to note that foot per second can be converted to other units of velocity. For example, 1 ft/s is approximately equal to 0.3048 meters per second (m/s) or 0.6818 miles per hour (mph).
In summary, foot per second (ft/s) is a unit of linear velocity measurement, representing the rate at which an object or particle travels a distance of one foot in one second. It is commonly used to quantify speeds in various contexts, such as transportation, sports, and engineering. Foot per second provides a convenient and relatable unit for measuring and comparing velocities in everyday scenarios.

### What is a Meter Per Minute?

Meters per minute is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in minutes. It is derived from the fundamental unit of length, the meter, and the unit of time, the minute.
To provide an example, let's consider a person walking at a speed of 50 meters per minute. This means that for every minute, the person covers a distance of 50 meters. If we extend this example, after 10 minutes of walking at this speed, the person would have traveled a total distance of 500 meters.
Meters per minute is a useful unit of speed in situations where a slower rate of movement is observed or measured. It can be applied to various scenarios, such as measuring the speed of pedestrians, the rate of conveyor belts, or the flow rate of fluids in certain industrial processes.
It's important to note that meters per minute is not as commonly used as other units of speed, such as meters per second or kilometers per hour. However, it can be converted to these more commonly used units by appropriate conversion factors. For example, 1 meter per minute is equivalent to 0.0167 meters per second or approximately 0.0606 kilometers per hour.
In summary, meters per minute is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in minutes. While not as frequently used as some other speed units, it finds applications in specific contexts where slower rates of movement are considered.
