How to convert

1 meter per second (m/s) = 2362.204724 inch per minute (in/min). Meter Per Second (m/s) is a unit of Speed used in Metric system. Inch Per Minute (in/min) is a unit of Speed used in Standard system.

Meters per second: A unit of speed

Meters per second (m/s) 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 seconds. For example, if a car travels 100 meters in 5 seconds, its speed is 20 m/s.

How to convert meters per second

Meters 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:

  • Kilometers per hour (km/h): To convert from m/s to km/h, multiply by 3.6. To convert from km/h to m/s, divide by 3.6. For example, 20 m/s is equal to 72 km/h, and 50 km/h is equal to 13.89 m/s.
  • Miles per hour (mph): To convert from m/s to mph, multiply by 2.2369. To convert from mph to m/s, divide by 2.2369. For example, 20 m/s is equal to 44.74 mph, and 30 mph is equal to 13.41 m/s.
  • Knots (kn): To convert from m/s to kn, multiply by 1.9438. To convert from kn to m/s, divide by 1.9438. For example, 20 m/s is equal to 38.88 kn, and 15 kn is equal to 7.72 m/s.
  • Feet per second (ft/s): To convert from m/s to ft/s, multiply by 3.2808. To convert from ft/s to m/s, divide by 3.2808. For example, 20 m/s is equal to 65.62 ft/s, and 40 ft/s is equal to 12.19 m/s.

Where meters per second are used

Meters per second are widely used in science and engineering to measure the speed or velocity of various phenomena, such as sound waves, light waves, wind speed, fluid flow, projectile motion, etc.

Meters per second are also used in some countries as the official unit of speed or velocity for road traffic signs and regulations. For example, in Canada, the maximum speed limit on highways is usually 100 km/h, which is equivalent to 27.78 m/s.

Meters per second are also used in sports and athletics to measure the performance of athletes, such as sprinters, swimmers, cyclists, etc.

Definition of meters per second

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

Mathematically, it can be expressed as:

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

History of meters 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 meter was originally defined in 1793 by the French Academy of Sciences as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole along a meridian through Paris.

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 meter per second as a unit of speed or velocity.

The meter per second was officially adopted as part of the SI system in 1960.

Example conversions of meters per second to other units

Here are some examples of converting meters per second to other units of speed or velocity:

  • 10 m/s = 36 km/h = 22.37 mph = 19.44 kn = 32.81 ft/s
  • 5 m/s = 18 km/h = 11.18 mph = 9.72 kn = 16.4 ft/s
  • 15 m/s = 54 km/h = 33.55 mph = 29.17 kn = 49.21 ft/s
  • 25 m/s = 90 km/h = 55.92 mph = 48.61 kn = 82.02 ft/s
  • 50 m/s = 180 km/h = 111.85 mph = 97.22 kn = 164.04 ft/s
  • 100 m/s = 360 km/h = 223.69 mph = 194.39 kn = 328.08 ft/s
  • 200 m/s = 720 km/h = 447.39 mph = 388.79 kn = 656.17 ft/s
Meters per second also can be marked as m/s and metres per second(alternative British English spelling in UK).

Inches Per Minute

Definition of Inches Per Minute

Inches per minute (ipm) is a unit of speed that measures how fast something is moving in terms of inches per unit of time. It is commonly used in machining applications, such as when describing the feed rate of a milling machine or a drill bit. The feed rate is the distance that the tool moves along the workpiece in one minute.

One inch per minute is equal to 0.00042333333333333 meters per second, or 0.0254 meters per minute. It can also be converted to other units of speed, such as feet per minute, miles per hour, or kilometers per hour, by using appropriate conversion factors.

How to Convert Inches Per Minute

To convert inches per minute to other units of speed, we need to multiply or divide by the corresponding conversion factors. For example, to convert inches per minute to feet per minute, we need to multiply by 12, since there are 12 inches in one foot. To convert inches per minute to miles per hour, we need to multiply by 0.056818181818182, since there are 0.056818181818182 miles in one inch.

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

  • To convert 10 ipm to feet per minute (fpm), we multiply by 12: 10 ipm x 12 = 120 fpm
  • To convert 20 ipm to yards per minute (ypm), we divide by 36, since there are 36 inches in one yard: 20 ipm / 36 = 0.55555555555556 ypm
  • To convert 30 ipm to miles per hour (mph), we multiply by 0.056818181818182: 30 ipm x 0.056818181818182 = 1.7045454545455 mph
  • To convert 40 ipm to millimeters per minute (mm/min), we multiply by 25.4, since there are 25.4 millimeters in one inch: 40 ipm x 25.4 = 1016 mm/min
  • To convert 50 ipm to centimeters per minute (cm/min), we multiply by 2.54, since there are 2.54 centimeters in one inch: 50 ipm x 2.54 = 127 cm/min
  • To convert 60 ipm to meters per minute (m/min), we multiply by 0.0254, since there are 0.0254 meters in one inch: 60 ipm x 0.0254 = 1.524 m/min

Where Inches Per Minute Are Used

Inches per minute are mainly used in the United States and other countries that use the US Standard system of measurement. They are often used in machining applications, such as milling, drilling, turning, and cutting, where the feed rate of the tool is an important parameter that affects the quality and efficiency of the process.

For example, a milling machine may have a feed rate of 100 ipm, which means that the tool moves along the workpiece at a speed of 100 inches per minute. A drill bit may have a feed rate of 20 ipm, which means that it advances into the material at a speed of 20 inches per minute.

Inches per minute are also used in some other fields, such as woodworking, printing, sewing, and conveyor belts, where the speed of movement is measured in inches per unit of time.

History of Inches Per Minute

The origin of inches per minute as a unit of speed can be traced back to the development of machining tools and techniques in the Industrial Revolution. As machines became more advanced and precise, there was a need for a standard unit of measurement that could describe the speed and feed rate of the tools.

Inches per minute were chosen as a convenient and simple unit that could be easily calculated and adjusted based on the size and type of the tool and the material being worked on. Inches were already a common unit of length in the US Standard system, so they were easy to apply and understand.

Inches per minute have been used ever since as a standard unit of speed for machining applications in the United States and other countries that use the US Standard system. They have also been adopted by some other fields that involve movement in inches per unit of time.

Example Conversions of Inches Per Minute to Other Units

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

  • To convert 100 ipm to feet per minute, we multiply by 12: 100 ipm x 12 = 1200 fpm
  • To convert 200 ipm to yards per minute, we divide by 36: 200 ipm / 36 = 5.5555555555556 ypm
  • To convert 300 ipm to miles per hour, we multiply by 0.056818181818182: 300 ipm x 0.056818181818182 = 17.045454545455 mph
  • To convert 400 ipm to millimeters per minute, we multiply by 25.4: 400 ipm x 25.4 = 10160 mm/min
  • To convert 500 ipm to centimeters per minute, we multiply by 2.54: 500 ipm x 2.54 = 1270 cm/min
  • To convert 600 ipm to meters per minute, we multiply by 0.0254: 600 ipm x 0.0254 = 15.24 m/min
  • To convert 700 ipm to kilometers per hour, we multiply by 0.09144, since there are 0.09144 kilometers in one inch: 700 ipm x 0.09144 = 64.008 km/h
Inch per minute also can be marked as inch/minute.
