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

The formula for converting meters per second to feet per hour is: ft/h = m/s × 11811.0189720398. To calculate the meter per second value in feet per hour first substitute the meter per second value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 meter per second in feet per hour we follow these steps:

ft/h = m/s × 11811.0189720398

ft/h = 1 × 11811.0189720398

ft/h = 11811.0189720398

In other words, 1 meter per second is equal to 11811.0189720398 feet per hour.

## Example Conversion

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

1. Understand the conversion formula: ft/h = m/s × 11811.0189720398
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 6 for m/s so the formula becomes: ft/h = 6 × 11811.0189720398
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 6 × 11811.0189720398 = 70866.1138322388 ft/h

In summary, 6 meters per second is equal to 70866.1138322388 feet per hour.

## Converting feet per hour to meters per second

In order to convert the other way around i.e. feet per hour to meters per second, you would use the following formula: m/s = ft/h × 0.0000846667. To convert feet per hour to meters per second first substitute the foot per hour value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 foot per hour in meters per second we follow these steps:

m/s = ft/h × 0.0000846667

m/s = 1 × 0.0000846667

m/s = 0.0000846667

Or in other words, 1 foot per hour is equal to 0.0000846667 meters per second.

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### What is a Meter Per Second?

Meters per second is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in seconds. It is a fundamental unit of speed in the International System of Units (SI).
To provide an example, let's consider a runner who covers a distance of 100 meters in 10 seconds. The average speed of the runner can be calculated by dividing the distance by the time: 100 meters / 10 seconds = 10 meters per second. This means that the runner is covering a distance of 10 meters every second.
Meters per second is a widely used unit to measure the speed of various objects and phenomena. It is commonly employed in everyday situations, such as measuring the speed of a car, the velocity of an athlete, or the flow rate of a fluid.
In scientific and engineering contexts, meters per second is also used to describe the speed of particles, the movement of waves, and the velocity of projectiles, among other applications.
It's worth noting that meters per second can be converted to other units of speed, such as kilometers per hour or miles per hour, by using appropriate conversion factors.
In summary, meters per second is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in meters divided by the time taken in seconds. It is commonly used to measure the speed of objects and phenomena in various fields, and it provides a straightforward and standardized measure of velocity.

### What is a Foot Per Hour?

Feet per hour (ft/hr) 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 hour. Feet per hour is used to quantify extremely slow speeds or rates of movement over extended time intervals.
To provide a detailed example of feet per hour, let's consider a scenario where a glacier is slowly advancing. If the glacier moves forward by a distance of 10 feet in one hour, then its velocity would be 10 ft/hr. This means that the glacier is advancing at a rate of 10 feet per hour.
Feet per hour is typically used in situations where very slow or gradual movements are involved, such as geological processes, long-term measurements, or specialized applications.
In geological studies or land surveying, feet per hour can be relevant for monitoring the movement of tectonic plates, the slow creep of landslides, or the gradual shifting of geological features. It allows for the measurement and observation of these processes over extended time periods.
Feet per hour can also find applications in specialized fields, such as precision engineering or scientific research. In experiments that require extremely slow and controlled movements, such as the positioning of sensitive instruments or delicate components, feet per hour can be used to describe the desired velocity.
It's important to note that feet per hour can be converted to other units of velocity. For example, 1 ft/hr is approximately equal to 0.0000847 feet per second (ft/s) or 0.0001263 miles per hour (mph).
In summary, feet per hour (ft/hr) is a unit of linear velocity measurement, representing the rate at which an object or particle travels a distance of one foot in one hour. It is used to quantify extremely slow speeds or rates of movement over extended time intervals. Feet per hour can be relevant in geological studies, precision engineering, or other specialized applications where very gradual movements need to be measured or observed.
