1 meter per minute (m/min) = 0.054680665 foot per second (fps). Meter Per Minute (m/min) is a unit of Speed used in Metric system. Foot Per Second (fps) is a unit of Speed used in Standard system.

## 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:

## 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 feet per second

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

Mathematically, it can be expressed as:

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

## History of feet 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 foot was originally derived from the Roman foot which was defined as one third of a yard or about 11.65 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 foot per second as a unit of speed or velocity.

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