22 feet per second.
At 25 miles per hour, a car travels: 36.67 feet per second.
80 and 2/3 feet per second or 80'8" per second
51.33 feet per second at 35 miles per hour.
10 mph = 14.6 feet per second.
50 miles per hour is 50 * 5280 (feet per mile) per hour = 264000 feet per hour and then, depending on how long a time period you're interested in...you could just divide the 2…64000 feet per hour by 60 to find the distance in feet per minute...then divide that again by 60 to find the distance in feet per second. A car will travel 264000 feet per hour at 50 mph. 264000 feet per hour / 60 minutes per hour = 4400 feet per minute 264000 feet per hour / 3600 seconds per hour = 73.33 feet per second
At 20 mph, a car is moving at about 29.3 feet per second.
44 feet per second.
58.6 feet per second at 40 miles per hour.
It is 95 and 1/3 feet per second.
At 40 mph, a car is traveling at about 58.6 feet per second.
1 Mile per Hour = 1.46666666666667 Feet per Second 35x1.46666666666667= around 51 feet per second..
45 mph (5280 feet/1 mile)(1 hour/3600 seconds) = 66 feet per second
That depends upon for how long it is moving: Every day it will travel 50 miles/hr x 5280 ft/mile x 24 hr/day = 6336000 ft/day Every hour it will travel 6336000 ft/day ÷ 2…4 hr/day = 264000 ft/hr Every minute it will travel 264000 ft/hr ÷ 60 min/hr = 4400 ft/min Every second it will travel 4400 ft/min ÷ 60 sec/min = 731/3 ft/sec ≈ 73.33 ft/sec * Added - The simple formula that should be used is converting MPH to feet per second (FPS). This is done by multiplying by 1.467, or for an easy rough estimate, 1.5. This result in 50mph = 73.35 fps. This is the method most often used by engineers and accident investigators. This can be used for determining braking distances for a car as well, once the deceleration rate is identified.
80mph = 117.3ft/s
Problem:50 miles/hour = ? feet/second Conversions Factors:1 mile = 1760 yards1 yard = 3 feet1 minute = 60 seconds1 hour = 60 minutes The first step I would do is combine the c…onversion factors to go from unit you are given to unit you want. Remember, units can cancel just like numbers and variables can, when using a faction. 1 mile = 1760 yards and 1 yard = 3 feet( 1 mile / 1760 yards ) x ( 1 yard / 3 feet ) = ( 1 mile / 5280 feet )This can be rewritten as: 1 mile = 5280 feet ( 60 seconds / 1 minute ) x ( 60 minute / 1 hour ) = ( 3600 seconds / 1 hour )This can be written as: 1 hour = 3600 seconds Now if you have 50 miles/hour.( 50 miles / hour ) x (1 hour / 3600 seconds ) = 50/3600 miles/second( 50/3600 miles / second ) x ( 5280 feet / 1 mile ) = 264000/3600 feet/second Simplify the fraction: 264000/3600 feet/second = 2640/36 ft/s ~= 73.33 ft/s The answer is 73.33 ft/s. Try working this out on your own. When you can see the fractions written normally, versus the way they have to entered on this site, it can be a little confusing to follow. When you see them on paper, it begins to make sense why they are cancelling out.
