## How to convert

1 foot per minute (ft/min) = 0.3048 meter per minute (m/min). Foot Per Minute (ft/min) is a unit of Speed used in Standard system. Meter Per Minute (m/min) is a unit of Speed used in Metric system. Foot per minute also can be marked as foot/minute.

## Meters per minute: A unit of speed

Meters per minute (m/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 meters divided by the time taken in minutes. For example, if a car travels 600 meters in 10 minutes, its speed is 60 m/min.

## How to convert meters per minute

Meters 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:

• Meters per second (m/s): To convert from m/min to m/s, divide by 60. To convert from m/s to m/min, multiply by 60. For example, 1 m/min is equal to 0.0166667 m/s, and 10 m/s is equal to 600 m/min.
• Kilometers per hour (km/h): To convert from m/min to km/h, multiply by 0.06. To convert from km/h to m/min, divide by 0.06. For example, 1 m/min is equal to 0.06 km/h, and 50 km/h is equal to 833.333 m/min.
• Miles per hour (mph): To convert from m/min to mph, multiply by 0.0372823. To convert from mph to m/min, divide by 0.0372823. For example, 1 m/min is equal to 0.0372823 mph, and 30 mph is equal to 804.672 m/min.
• Knots (kn): To convert from m/min to kn, multiply by 0.0323974. To convert from kn to m/min, divide by 0.0323974. For example, 1 m/min is equal to 0.0323974 kn, and 15 kn is equal to 462.963 m/min.
• Feet per minute (ft/min): To convert from m/min to ft/min, multiply by 3.2808399. To convert from ft/min to m/min, divide by 3.2808399. For example,1 m/min is equal to 3.2808399 ft/min, and 10 ft/min is equal to 3.048 m/min.
• Inches per minute (in/min): To convert from m/min to in/min, multiply by 39.3700787. To convert from in/min to m/min, divide by 39.3700787. For example,1 m/min is equal to 39.3700787 in/min, and 20 in/min is equal to 0.508 m/min.

## Where meters per minute are used

Meters per minute are mainly used in engineering and manufacturing to measure the speed or velocity of machines and processes.

For example, the cutting speed of a lathe or a milling machine is often given in meters per minute, which indicates how fast the tool moves relative to the workpiece.

The conveyor belt speed of a production line is often given in meters per minute, which indicates how fast the products move along the belt.

The airspeed of a glider or a balloon is often given in meters per minute, which indicates how fast the aircraft ascends or descends.

## Definition of meters per minute

According to the SI definition, one meter per minute is the speed of a body that covers a distance of one meter in a time of one minute.

Mathematically, it can be expressed as:

where v is the speed or velocity in meters per minute, s is the distance traveled in meters, and t is the time taken in minutes.

## History of meters 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 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 meter per minute as a unit of speed or velocity.

The meter per minute was officially adopted as part of the SI system in 1960.

## Example conversions of meters per minute to other units

Here are some examples of converting meters per minute to other units of speed or velocity:

1 m/min = 0.0166667 m/s = 0.06 km/h = 0.0372823 mph = 0.0323974 kn = 3.2808399 ft/min = 39.3700787 in/min
2 m/min = 0.0333333 m/s = 0.12 km/h = 0.0745646 mph = 0.0647948 kn = 6.5616798 ft/min = 78.7401574 in/min
5 m/min = 0.0833333 m/s = 0.3 km/h = 0.186411 mph = 0.161987 kn = 16.4041995 ft/min = 196.8503937 in/min
10 m/min = 0.166667 m/s = 0.6 km/h = 0.372823 mph = 0.323974 kn = 32.808399 ft/min = 393.7007874 in/min
20 m/min = 0.333333 m/s = 1.2 km/h = 0.745645 mph = 0.647948 kn = 65.616798 ft/min = 787.4015748 in/min
50 m/min = 0.833333 m/s = 3 km/h = 1.86411 mph = 1.61987 kn = 164.042 ft/min = 1968.5 in/min
100 m/min = 1.66667 m/s = 6 km/h = 3.72823 mph = 3.23974 kn = 328.084 ft/min = 3937.01 in/min

Meters per minute also can be marked as m/min and metres per minute (alternative British English spelling in UK).
