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

The formula for converting meters per second to feet per minute is: ft/m = m/s × 196.850393700787. To calculate the meter per second value in feet per minute 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 minute we follow these steps:

ft/m = m/s × 196.850393700787

ft/m = 1 × 196.850393700787

ft/m = 196.850393700787

In other words, 1 meter per second is equal to 196.850393700787 feet per minute.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 9 meters per second to feet per minute is:

1. Understand the conversion formula: ft/m = m/s × 196.850393700787
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 9 for m/s so the formula becomes: ft/m = 9 × 196.850393700787
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 9 × 196.850393700787 = 1771.653543307083 ft/m

In summary, 9 meters per second is equal to 1771.653543307083 feet per minute.

## Converting feet per minute to meters per second

In order to convert the other way around i.e. feet per minute to meters per second, you would use the following formula: m/s = ft/m × 0.00508. To convert feet per minute to meters per second first substitute the foot per minute value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 foot per minute in meters per second we follow these steps:

m/s = ft/m × 0.00508

m/s = 1 × 0.00508

m/s = 0.00508

Or in other words, 1 foot per minute is equal to 0.00508 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 Minute?

Feet per minute (ft/min) 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 minute. Feet per minute is used to quantify slower speeds or rates of movement over longer time intervals.
To provide a detailed example of feet per minute, let's consider a scenario where a conveyor belt moves objects at a constant speed. If the objects are transported a distance of 50 feet in one minute, then the velocity of the conveyor belt would be 50 ft/min. This means that the objects are being transported at a rate of 50 feet per minute.
While not as commonly used as feet per second, feet per minute can find applications in certain contexts where slower speeds or extended durations are involved.
In industrial settings, feet per minute can be relevant for conveyors, assembly lines, or material handling systems. It allows for the measurement and control of the speed at which objects are transported or processed.
Feet per minute can also be used in specialized applications that involve slower rates of movement or flow. For example, in ventilation systems or air conditioning, the velocity of air movement or airflow can be expressed in terms of feet per minute.
It's important to note that feet per minute can be converted to other units of velocity. For example, 1 ft/min is approximately equal to 0.00508 meters per second (m/s) or 0.01136 miles per hour (mph).
In summary, feet per minute (ft/min) is a unit of linear velocity measurement, representing the rate at which an object or particle travels a distance of one foot in one minute. It is commonly used to quantify slower speeds or rates of movement over extended durations. Feet per minute can be relevant in industrial, ventilation, and airflow applications where slower velocities need to be measured or controlled.
