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.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 3 feet per second to meters per minute is:
- Understand the conversion formula: m/min = ft/s × 18.288
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 3 for ft/s so the formula becomes: m/min = 3 × 18.288
- 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.
