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

The formula for converting meters per hour to feet per second is: ft/s = m/h × 0.000911344415281423. To calculate the meter per hour value in feet per second first substitute the meter per hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 meter per hour in feet per second we follow these steps:

ft/s = m/h × 0.000911344415281423

ft/s = 1 × 0.000911344415281423

ft/s = 0.000911344415281423

In other words, 1 meter per hour is equal to 0.000911344415281423 feet per second.

## Example Conversion

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

1. Understand the conversion formula: ft/s = m/h × 0.000911344415281423
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 8 for m/h so the formula becomes: ft/s = 8 × 0.000911344415281423
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 8 × 0.000911344415281423 = 0.007290755322251384 ft/s

In summary, 8 meters per hour is equal to 0.007290755322251384 feet per second.

## Converting feet per second to meters per hour

In order to convert the other way around i.e. feet per second to meters per hour, you would use the following formula: m/h = ft/s × 1097.28. To convert feet per second to meters per hour first substitute the foot per second value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 foot per second in meters per hour we follow these steps:

m/h = ft/s × 1097.28

m/h = 1 × 1097.28

m/h = 1097.28

Or in other words, 1 foot per second is equal to 1097.28 meters per hour.

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### 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.

### 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.
