How to convert

1 meter per hour (m/h) = 0.010936133 inch per second (in/s). Meter Per Hour (m/h) is a unit of Speed used in Metric system. Inch Per Second (in/s) is a unit of Speed used in Standard system.

Meters Per Hour

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.

Example Conversions of Meters Per Hour to Other Units

Here are some examples of how to convert meters per hour to other units of speed, using the conversion factors given above:

  • To convert 100 m/h to feet per second, we multiply by 0.0009113444153: 100 m/h x 0.0009113444153 = 0.09113444153 fps
  • To convert 200 m/h to miles per hour, we multiply by 0.0006213711922: 200 m/h x 0.0006213711922 = 0.12427423884 mph
  • To convert 300 m/h to knots, we multiply by 0.0005399568035: 300 m/h x 0.0005399568035 = 0.16198704105 kn
  • To convert 400 m/h to meters per second, we divide by 3600: 400 m/h / 3600 = 0.11111111111 m/s
  • To convert 500 m/h to meters per minute, we divide by 60: 500 m/h / 60 = 8.33333333333 m/min
  • To convert 600 m/h to centimeters per second, we multiply by 100 and divide by 3600: 600 m/h x 100 / 3600 = 16.66666666667 cm/s
  • To convert 700 m/h to millimeters per minute, we multiply by 1000, since there are 1000 millimeters in one meter, and divide by 60: 700 m/h x 1000 / 60 = 11666.666666667 mm/min
Meters per hour also can be marked as m/h and metres per hour (alternative British English spelling in UK).

Inches per second: A unit of speed

Inches per second ( in/s) is a unit of speed or velocity in the US customary and imperial systems. It measures how fast an object is moving by calculating the distance traveled in inches divided by the time taken in seconds. For example, if a worm travels 2 inches in 1 second, its speed is 2 in/s.

How to convert inches per second

Inches per second 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 in/s to m/s, multiply by 0.0254. To convert from m/s to in/s, divide by 0.0254. For example, 1 in/s is equal to 0.0254 m/s, and 10 m/s is equal to 393.701 in/s.
  • Kilometers per hour (km/h): To convert from in/s to km/h, multiply by 0.09144. To convert from km/h to in/s, divide by 0.09144. For example, 1 in/s is equal to 0.09144 km/h, and 50 km/h is equal to 547.867 in/s.
  • Miles per hour (mph): To convert from in/s to mph, multiply by 0.0568182. To convert from mph to in/s, divide by 0.0568182. For example, 1 in/s is equal to 0.0568182 mph, and 30 mph is equal to 528 in/s.
  • Knots (kn): To convert from in/s to kn, multiply by 0.0493737. To convert from kn to in/s, divide by 0.0493737. For example, 1 in/s is equal to 0.0493737 kn, and 15 kn is equal to 303.795 in/s.
  • Feet per second (ft/s): To convert from in/s to ft/s, divide by 12. To convert from ft/s to in/s, multiply by 12. For example, 1 in/s is equal to 0.0833333 ft/s, and 10 ft/s is equal to 120 in/s .
  • Miles per second (mi/s): To convert from in/s to mi/s , multiply by 1.5783x10 -5 . To convert from mi/s to in/s, divide by 1.5783x10 -5 . For example,1 in/s is equal to 1.5783x10 -5 mi/s, and 1 mi/s is equal to 63360 in/s .

Where inches per second are used

Inches per second 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 inches per minute, which is equivalent to inches per second divided by 60.

The rotational speed of a hard disk drive is often given in revolutions per minute, which can be converted to inches per second by multiplying by the circumference of the disk.

The flow rate of a fluid through a pipe or a nozzle is often given in gallons per minute, which can be converted to inches per second by multiplying by the cross-sectional area of the pipe or the nozzle.

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.
