## What is the Formula to convert Foot/minute to Meter/second?

The formula to convert given speed from Foot/minute to Meter/second is:

Speed_{(Meter/second)} = Speed_{(Foot/minute)} / 196.8503937

Substitute the given value of speed in foot/minute, i.e., Speed_{(Foot/minute)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the speed in meter/second, i.e., Speed_{(Meter/second)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### A treadmill is set to a speed of 3 feet per minute.

Convert this speed from feet per minute to Meter/second.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The speed in foot/minute is:

Speed_{(Foot/minute)} = 3

**Formula:**

The formula to convert speed from foot/minute to meter/second is:

Speed_{(Meter/second)} = Speed_{(Foot/minute)} / 196.8503937

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Speed _{(Foot/minute)} = 3** in the above formula.

Speed_{(Meter/second)} = 3 / 196.8503937

Speed_{(Meter/second)} = 0.01524

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **3 ft/min** is equal to **0.01524 m/s**.

The speed is **0.01524 m/s**, in meter/second.

### A lift moves at a speed of 20 feet per minute.

Convert this speed from feet per minute to Meter/second.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The speed in foot/minute is:

Speed_{(Foot/minute)} = 20

**Formula:**

The formula to convert speed from foot/minute to meter/second is:

Speed_{(Meter/second)} = Speed_{(Foot/minute)} / 196.8503937

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Speed _{(Foot/minute)} = 20** in the above formula.

Speed_{(Meter/second)} = 20 / 196.8503937

Speed_{(Meter/second)} = 0.1016

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **20 ft/min** is equal to **0.1016 m/s**.

The speed is **0.1016 m/s**, in meter/second.

## Foot/minute

The foot per minute (ft/min) is a unit of speed describing how many feet an object moves in one minute. It is commonly used in industrial settings, such as measuring the speed of machines, escalators, or conveyor belts.

## Meter/second

The meter per second (m/s) is a unit of speed or velocity in the metric system, representing the distance traveled in meters over one second. It is commonly used in physics and engineering to describe how quickly an object is moving or how fast a process is occurring. This unit is fundamental in scientific contexts, where precise measurements of speed are required.
