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

The formula for converting meters per minute to meters per hour is: m/h = m/min × 60. To calculate the meter per minute value in meters per hour first substitute the meter per minute value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 meter per minute in meters per hour we follow these steps:

m/h = m/min × 60

m/h = 1 × 60

m/h = 60

In other words, 1 meter per minute is equal to 60 meters per hour.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 meters per minute to meters per hour is:

1. Understand the conversion formula: m/h = m/min × 60
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for m/min so the formula becomes: m/h = 5 × 60
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 60 = 300 m/h

In summary, 5 meters per minute is equal to 300 meters per hour.

## Converting meters per hour to meters per minute

In order to convert the other way around i.e. meters per hour to meters per minute, you would use the following formula: m/min = m/h × 0.0166666666666667. To convert meters per hour to meters 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 meters per minute we follow these steps:

m/min = m/h × 0.0166666666666667

m/min = 1 × 0.0166666666666667

m/min = 0.0166666666666667

Or in other words, 1 meter per hour is equal to 0.0166666666666667 meters per minute.

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### 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.

### 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.
