## How to convert miles per hour to feet per minute (mph to ft/m)

The formula for converting miles per hour to feet per minute is: ft/m = mph × 87.9999997184. To calculate the mile per hour value in feet per minute first substitute the mile per hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 mile per hour in feet per minute we follow these steps:

ft/m = mph × 87.9999997184

ft/m = 1 × 87.9999997184

ft/m = 87.9999997184

In other words, 1 mile per hour is equal to 87.9999997184 feet per minute.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 2 miles per hour to feet per minute is:

1. Understand the conversion formula: ft/m = mph × 87.9999997184
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 2 for mph so the formula becomes: ft/m = 2 × 87.9999997184
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 2 × 87.9999997184 = 175.9999994368 ft/m

In summary, 2 miles per hour is equal to 175.9999994368 feet per minute.

## Converting feet per minute to miles per hour

In order to convert the other way around i.e. feet per minute to miles per hour, you would use the following formula: mph = ft/m × 0.0113636364. To convert feet per minute to miles per hour 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 miles per hour we follow these steps:

mph = ft/m × 0.0113636364

mph = 1 × 0.0113636364

mph = 0.0113636364

Or in other words, 1 foot per minute is equal to 0.0113636364 miles per hour.

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### What is a Mile Per Hour?

Mile per hour (abbreviated as mph) is a unit of speed commonly used in countries that follow the imperial system of measurement, such as the United States and the United Kingdom. It measures the distance traveled in miles divided by the time taken in hours.
The mile, which is the primary unit in this measurement, is an imperial unit of length equal to 5,280 feet or approximately 1.609 kilometers. It originated from ancient Roman measurements and has been widely adopted in various English-speaking countries.
The hour, the unit of time in this measurement, is a standard unit of time equal to 60 minutes or 3,600 seconds. It is used to quantify the duration of an event or the time taken to travel a certain distance.
To better understand mile per hour, let's consider an example. Imagine a car traveling at a constant speed of 60 mph. This means that for every hour, the car covers a distance of 60 miles. In practical terms, if the car maintains this speed for 4 hours, it would have traveled a total distance of 240 miles.
Mile per hour is widely used to measure the speed of vehicles, such as cars, motorcycles, trucks, and airplanes, on roads, highways, and runways. Speed limit signs, traffic reports, and vehicle speedometers often display speeds in miles per hour.
It's important to note that mile per hour is not the sole unit of speed used globally. Many countries, particularly those that follow the metric system, use kilometers per hour (km/h) as their primary unit of speed. Conversion between mile per hour and kilometer per hour can be done using the conversion factor of approximately 1.609.
In summary, mile per hour is a unit of speed used in countries that follow the imperial system of measurement. It represents the distance traveled in miles divided by the time taken in hours and is commonly used to measure the speed of vehicles. Understanding and converting between different speed units, such as mile per hour and kilometer per hour, is essential for international travel and communication.

### 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.
