Convert Feet Per Minute to Centimeters Per Minute (ft/min to cm/min) ▶
How to convert
1 centimeter per minute (cm/min) = 0.032808399 foot per minute (ft/min). Centimeter Per Minute (cm/min) is a unit of Speed used in Metric system. Foot Per Minute (ft/min) is a unit of Speed used in Standard system.
Centimeters per minute: A unit of speed
Centimeters per minute (cm/min) is a unit of speed or velocity in the International System of Units (SI). It measures how fast an object is moving by calculating the distance traveled in centimeters divided by the time taken in minutes. For example, if a snail travels 6 centimeters in 3 minutes, its speed is 2 cm/min.
How to convert centimeters per minute
Centimeters per minute can be converted to other units of speed or velocity by using simple conversion factors. Here are some common units and their conversion factors:
Where centimeters per minute are used
Centimeters per minute are mainly used in science and engineering to measure the flow rate of fluids and gases.
For example, the standard cubic centimeter per minute (SCCM) is a unit used to quantify the flow rate of a fluid at standard conditions of temperature and pressure.
The flow rate of blood through a capillary is often measured in centimeters per minute.
The flow rate of air through a wind tunnel is often measured in centimeters per second, which is equivalent to centimeters per minute divided by 60.
Definition of centimeters per minute
According to the SI definition, one centimeter per minute is the speed of a body that covers a distance of one centimeter in a time of one minute.
Mathematically, it can be expressed as:
where v is the speed or velocity in centimeters per minute, s is the distance traveled in centimeters, and t is the time taken in minutes.
History of centimeters per minute
The concept of speed or velocity has been studied since ancient times by philosophers and scientists such as Aristotle, Galileo, Newton, etc.
The centimeter was originally derived from the French centimeter which was defined as one hundredth of a meter.
The meter was originally derived from the French meter which was defined as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole.
The minute was originally derived from the Babylonian sexagesimal system which divided an hour into sixty minutes.
The combination of these two units resulted in the centimeter per minute as a unit of speed or velocity.
The centimeter per minute was officially adopted as part of the SI system in 1960.
Example conversions of centimeters per minute to other units
Here are some examples of converting centimeters per minute to other units of speed or velocity:
1 cm/min = 0.000166667 m/s = 0.0006 km/h = 0.000372823 mph = 0.000323974 kn = 0.0328084 ft/min = 0.393701 in/min
