Convert meter / second to foot / hour

Learn how to convert 1 meter / second to foot / hour step by step.

Calculation Breakdown

Set up the equation
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(\dfrac{foot}{hour}\right)$$
Define the base values of the selected units in relation to the SI unit $$\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)$$
$$\text{Left side: 1.0 } \left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right) = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 1.0\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 1.0\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}$$
$$\text{Right side: 1.0 } \left(\dfrac{foot}{hour}\right) = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}$$
Insert known values into the conversion equation to determine $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(\dfrac{foot}{hour}\right)$$
$$\text{Insert known values } =>$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 1.0} \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)}$$
$$\text{Or}$$
$$1.0 \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 1.0} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}$$
$$\text{Cancel SI units}$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 1.0} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0 = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$$1.0 = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}$$
Switch sides
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}} = 1.0$$
Isolate $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
Multiply both sides by $$\left(\dfrac{3.6 \times 10^{3}}{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}\right)$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}{3.6 \times 10^{3}} \times \dfrac{3.6 \times 10^{3}}{3.048 \times 10^{-1}} = 1.0 \times \dfrac{3.6 \times 10^{3}}{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}$$
$$\text{Cancel}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{{\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{3.048}} \times {\color{rgb(99,194,222)} \cancel{10^{-1}}} \times {\color{rgb(166,218,227)} \cancel{3.6}} \times {\color{rgb(76,153,0)} \cancel{10^{3}}}}{{\color{rgb(166,218,227)} \cancel{3.6}} \times {\color{rgb(76,153,0)} \cancel{10^{3}}} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{3.048}} \times {\color{rgb(99,194,222)} \cancel{10^{-1}}}} = 1.0 \times \dfrac{3.6 \times 10^{3}}{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{3.6 \times 10^{3}}{3.048 \times 10^{-1}}$$
Rewrite equation
$$\dfrac{1.0}{10^{-1}}\text{ can be rewritten to }10$$
$$\text{Rewrite}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{10.0 \times 3.6 \times 10^{3}}{3.048}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{10^{4} \times 3.6}{3.048}$$
Solve $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\approx11811.023622\approx1.1811 \times 10^{4}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)\approx{\color{rgb(20,165,174)} 1.1811 \times 10^{4}}\left(\dfrac{foot}{hour}\right)$$
