## Definition of inches per second

According to the US customary and imperial systems definition, one inch per second is the speed of a body that covers a distance of one inch in a time of one second.

Mathematically, it can be expressed as:

where v is the speed or velocity in inches per second, s is the distance traveled in inches, and t is the time taken in seconds.

## History of inches per second

The concept of speed or velocity has been studied since ancient times by philosophers and scientists such as Aristotle, Galileo, Newton, etc.

The inch was originally derived from the Roman uncia which was one twelfth of a Roman foot or about 0.97 inches .

The second was originally defined in terms of the Earth’s rotation as one eighty-six thousand four hundredth of a mean solar day.

The combination of these two units resulted in the inch per second as a unit of speed or velocity.

The inch per second was officially adopted as part of the US customary and imperial systems in the late 18th century.
