How to convert miles per second to miles per minute (mi/s to mi/m)

The formula for converting miles per second to miles per minute is: mi/m = mi/s × 60. To calculate the mile per second value in miles per minute 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 miles per minute we follow these steps:

mi/m = mi/s × 60

mi/m = 1 × 60

mi/m = 60

In other words, 1 mile per second is equal to 60 miles per minute.


Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 4 miles per second to miles per minute is:

  1. Understand the conversion formula: mi/m = mi/s × 60
  2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 4 for mi/s so the formula becomes: mi/m = 4 × 60
  3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 4 × 60 = 240 mi/m

In summary, 4 miles per second is equal to 240 miles per minute.


Converting miles per minute to miles per second

In order to convert the other way around i.e. miles per minute to miles per second, you would use the following formula: mi/s = mi/m × 0.0166666666666667. To convert miles per minute to miles per second first substitute the mile per minute value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 mile per minute in miles per second we follow these steps:

mi/s = mi/m × 0.0166666666666667

mi/s = 1 × 0.0166666666666667

mi/s = 0.0166666666666667

Or in other words, 1 mile per minute is equal to 0.0166666666666667 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 Mile Per Minute?

Mile per minute is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in miles divided by the time taken in minutes. It is derived from the unit of length, the mile, and the unit of time, the minute.
To provide an example, let's consider a car traveling at a speed of 60 miles per minute. This means that for every minute, the car covers a distance of 60 miles. In a span of 10 minutes, the car would travel a total distance of 600 miles.
Mile per minute is not a commonly used unit of speed, as it represents an exceptionally high rate of movement. Such speeds are typically achieved in specialized circumstances, such as high-speed trains or experimental vehicles.
It's important to note that mile per minute can be converted to other more commonly used units of speed, such as miles per hour or kilometers per hour, using appropriate conversion factors. For example, 1 mile per minute is equivalent to 60 miles per hour or approximately 96.56 kilometers per hour.
In summary, mile per minute is a unit of speed that represents the distance traveled in miles divided by the time taken in minutes. It is not a frequently used speed unit in everyday contexts, but it may find relevance in specific applications where very high rates of movement are considered.
