## Kilometers per minute: A unit of speed

Kilometers per minute (km/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 kilometers divided by the time taken in minutes. For example, if a train travels 3 kilometers in 2 minutes, its speed is 1.5 km/min.

## Where kilometers per minute are used

Kilometers per minute are mainly used in transportation and sports to measure the speed or velocity of vehicles and athletes.

For example, the maximum speed of a Formula One car is about 5 km/min or about 300 km/h.

The average speed of a marathon runner is about 0.35 km/min or about 21 km/h.

The cruising speed of a commercial jet airliner is about 16.67 km/min or about 1000 km/h.

## Definition of kilometers per minute

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

Mathematically, it can be expressed as:

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

## History of kilometers 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 kilometer was originally derived from the French kilometer which was defined as one thousand meters.

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 kilometer per minute as a unit of speed or velocity.

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

Kilometers per minute also can be marked as km/min and Kilometres per minute(alternative British English spelling in UK).

## Definition of Meters Per Hour

Meters per hour (m/h) is a unit of speed that measures how fast something is moving in terms of meters per unit of time. It is a metric unit that is derived from the base unit of length, the meter, and the base unit of time, the hour. It is rarely used however, as the units of meters per second and kilometers per hour are considered sufficient for most situations.

One meter per hour is equal to 0.00027777777777778 meters per second, or 0.001 kilometers per hour. It can also be converted to other units of speed, such as feet per second, miles per hour, or knots, by using appropriate conversion factors.

## How to Convert Meters Per Hour

To convert meters per hour to other units of speed, we need to multiply or divide by the corresponding conversion factors. For example, to convert meters per hour to feet per second, we need to multiply by 0.0009113444153, since there are 0.0009113444153 feet in one meter. To convert meters per hour to kilometers per hour, we need to multiply by 0.001, since there are 0.001 kilometers in one meter.

Here are some examples of how to convert meters per hour to other units of length in the US Standard system and the SI system:

• To convert 10 m/h to feet per second (fps), we multiply by 0.0009113444153: 10 m/h x 0.0009113444153 = 0.009113444153 fps
• To convert 20 m/h to miles per hour (mph), we multiply by 0.0006213711922, since there are 0.0006213711922 miles in one meter: 20 m/h x 0.0006213711922 = 0.012427423844 mph
• To convert 30 m/h to knots (kn), we multiply by 0.0005399568035, since there are 0.0005399568035 nautical miles in one meter: 30 m/h x 0.0005399568035 = 0.016198704105 kn
• To convert 40 m/h to meters per second (m/s), we divide by 3600, since there are 3600 seconds in one hour: 40 m/h / 3600 = 0.011111111111 m/s
• To convert 50 m/h to meters per minute (m/min), we divide by 60, since there are 60 minutes in one hour: 50 m/h / 60 = 0.833333333333 m/min
• To convert 60 m/h to centimeters per second (cm/s), we multiply by 100, since there are 100 centimeters in one meter, and divide by 3600: 60 m/h x 100 / 3600 = 1.666666666667 cm/s

## Where Meters Per Hour Are Used

Meters per hour are mainly used for measuring very slow speeds or velocities of objects or phenomena that move in terms of meters per unit of time. They are often used in scientific fields such as geology, biology, astronomy, and physics, where the speed or velocity of an object or phenomenon is very small compared to the usual units of speed.

For example, a glacier may have a speed of a few meters per hour, which means that it moves a few meters in one hour. A snail may have a speed of up to 47 meters per hour, which means that it can travel up to 47 meters in one hour. A planet may have an orbital velocity of thousands of meters per hour, which means that it covers thousands of meters along its orbit in one hour.

Meters per hour are also used in some other fields where the speed or velocity of an object or phenomenon is measured in terms of meters per unit of time.

## History of Meters Per Hour

The origin of meters per hour as a unit of speed can be traced back to the development of the metric system and the meter as a unit of length in the late eighteenth century. The meter was defined as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole along a meridian through Paris.

The term meter first appeared in English in 1797, but it was not until later in the early nineteenth century that the use of meters per hour became more common; before that, other units such as feet per hour or leagues per hour were preferred for expressing speed.

Meters per hour have been used ever since as a standard unit of speed for measuring very slow speeds or velocities of objects or phenomena that move in terms of meters per unit of time. They have also been adopted by some international organizations and conventions, such as the International System of Units and the International Astronomical Union.
