## How to convert miles per second to feet per hour (mi/s to ft/h)

The formula for converting miles per second to feet per hour is: ft/h = mi/s × 19008000.0034062. To calculate the mile per second value in feet per hour first substitute the mile per second value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 mile per second in feet per hour we follow these steps:

ft/h = mi/s × 19008000.0034062

ft/h = 1 × 19008000.0034062

ft/h = 19008000.0034062

In other words, 1 mile per second is equal to 19008000.0034062 feet per hour.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 3 miles per second to feet per hour is:

1. Understand the conversion formula: ft/h = mi/s × 19008000.0034062
2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 3 for mi/s so the formula becomes: ft/h = 3 × 19008000.0034062
3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 3 × 19008000.0034062 = 57024000.0102186 ft/h

In summary, 3 miles per second is equal to 57024000.0102186 feet per hour.

## Converting feet per hour to miles per second

In order to convert the other way around i.e. feet per hour to miles per second, you would use the following formula: mi/s = ft/h × 0.0000000526094276. To convert feet per hour to miles 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 miles per second we follow these steps:

mi/s = ft/h × 0.0000000526094276

mi/s = 1 × 0.0000000526094276

mi/s = 0.0000000526094276

Or in other words, 1 foot per hour is equal to 0.0000000526094276 miles per second.

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### What is a Mile Per Second?

Mile per second is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in miles divided by the time taken in seconds. It is a relatively high-speed measurement used to describe rapid velocities.
To provide an example, let's consider a rocket that is traveling at a speed of 10 miles per second. This means that for every second, the rocket covers a distance of 10 miles. In a span of 5 seconds, the rocket would travel a total distance of 50 miles.
Mile per second is predominantly used in the field of aerospace and astrodynamics, where extremely high velocities are involved. It is a suitable unit to describe the speed of spacecraft, missiles, or other objects that achieve significant velocities in a short amount of time.
For comparison, the speed of sound is approximately 0.21 miles per second. Therefore, a velocity of 10 miles per second is significantly faster than the speed of sound. This indicates that the rocket is traveling at supersonic speeds and likely in the realm of space travel.
It's important to note that mile per second is not a commonly used unit for everyday speeds, as it represents extremely rapid velocities that are beyond the capabilities of most vehicles or objects. More commonly used speed units include miles per hour, kilometers per hour, or meters per second.
In summary, mile per second is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in miles divided by the time taken in seconds. It is primarily used in aerospace and astrodynamics to describe high velocities, typically associated with space travel.

### 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.
