## 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.

## 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.

## Definition of Kilometers Per Day

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

One kilometer per day is equal to 0.011574074074074 meters per second, or 0.041666666666667 kilometers per hour. It can also be converted to other units of speed, such as miles per hour, feet per second, or knots, by using appropriate conversion factors.

## How to Convert Kilometers Per Day

To convert kilometers per day to other units of speed, we need to multiply or divide by the corresponding conversion factors. For example, to convert kilometers per day to miles per hour, we need to multiply by 0.0254, since there are 0.0254 miles in one kilometer. To convert kilometers per day to meters per second, we need to multiply by 0.011574074074074, since there are 0.011574074074074 meters in one kilometer.

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

• To convert 10 km/d to miles per hour (mph), we multiply by 0.0254: 10 km/d x 0.0254 = 0.254 mph
• To convert 20 km/d to feet per second (fps), we multiply by 0.0378788, since there are 0.037878788 feet in one meter: 20 km/d x 0.037878788 = 0.75757576 fps
• To convert 30 km/d to knots (kn), we multiply by 0.0218645833, since there are 0.021864583 nautical miles in one kilometer: 30 km/d x 0.0218645833 = 0.6559375 kn
• To convert 40 km/d to meters per second (m/s), we multiply by 0.011574074074074: 40 km/d x 0.011574074074074 = 0.462962962963 m/s
• To convert 50 km/d to meters per minute (m/min), we multiply by 0.6944444, since there are 0.6944444 minutes in one hour: 50 km/d x 0.6944444 = 34.722222 m/min
• To convert 60 km/d to centimeters per second (cm/s), we multiply by 100, since there are 100 centimeters in one meter, and multiply by 0.011574074074074: 60 km/d x 100 x 0.011574074074074 = 69.444444 cm/s

## Where Kilometers Per Day Are Used

Kilometers per day are mainly used for measuring the average speed or distance traveled by an object or phenomenon over a period of time that is measured in days or longer. They are often used in fields such as travel, fitness, sports, and geography, where the speed or distance traveled by an object or phenomenon is measured in terms of kilometers per unit of time.

For example, a person may travel an average of 100 km/d on a road trip across a country, which means that they cover an average distance of 100 kilometers in one day. A runner may run an average of 5 km/d as part of their training routine, which means that they run a distance of 5 kilometers in one day. A planet may have an orbital velocity of thousands of kilometers per day, which means that it covers thousands of kilometers along its orbit in one day.

Kilometers per day are also used in some other fields where the speed or distance traveled by an object or phenomenon is measured in terms of kilometers per unit of time.

## History of Kilometers Per Day

The origin of kilometers per day as a unit of speed can be traced back to the development of the metric system and the kilometer as a unit of length in the late eighteenth century. The kilometer was defined as one thousand meters based on the French standard meter.

The term kilometer first appeared in English in 1810, but it was not until later in the mid-late 19 th century that the use of kilometers per day became more common; before that, other units such as miles per day or leagues per day were preferred for expressing speed.

Kilometers per day have been used ever since as a standard unit of speed for measuring the average speed or distance traveled by an object or phenomenon over a period of time that is measured in days or longer. They have also been adopted by some international organizations and conventions, such as the International System of Units and the International Astronomical Union.
