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.
How to convert kilometers per minute
Kilometers 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 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.
Example conversions of kilometers per minute to other units
Here are some examples of converting kilometers per minute to other units of speed or velocity:
1 km/min = 16.6667 m/s = 60 km/h = 37.2823mph = 32.3974kn = 3280.8399 ft/min = 39370.0787 in/min
