The 'second' referred to is in reference to Degrees Minutes & Seconds Such As:
N 11Â°22'33" E (example) Where the 33" is the "Seconds".
However in the case listed above, the Degrees, minutes, and Seconds refers to a direction and not a location. The appropriate answer to the question refers to Latitude and Longitude, where you will express the degrees, minutes, and seconds as a location rather than a direction and will appear similar to this:
11Â°22'33" N, 11Â°22'33" W (example)
Answer in this scenario:
A degree covers about 69 miles. Divide that by minutes and find that there is about 1.15 miles in a minute. Divide that by 60 and you will find that there is about .019 miles in a second. Since there are 5280 feet in a mile, multiply .019 by 5280 to get about 101.20 feet in a second.
There are APPROXIMATLEY 101.20 FEET between two seconds of latitude or longitude.

Knowing longitude and latitude are important for anyone who is reading a map or navigating a ship. There are 366,666 feet in one degree of longitude.
The Second. A Second is 1/60th of a Minute, 1/3600th of a Degree. One second of longitude represents roughly 31 meters (102 feet) at the Equator.
Every degree of latitude is the same size, regardless of its longitude. That size is about 69.11 miles, or 364,900 feet.
About 101.1-ft at the equator, decreasing (as the cosine of the latitude) toward the poles. ,Additional Information: At the equator . . .One arc second = 1/60/60 degree = ~30 meter length = ~100 feet.,One arc minute = 1/60 degree = ~1855 meters ~ one nautical mile ~ 6087 feet.
50 mph = 73.3 feet per second.
1" in latitude represents a distance of about 102 feet. 1" of longitude represents a distance of about 102 feet along the equator. The farther from the equator you are, the shorter 1" of longitude becomes. At the north and south poles, all longitudes converge in one point.
30.8 feet in one second.
1 mph = 1.46 feet per second.
One knot equates to about 1.687 feet per second.
At 40 mph you are traveling about 58.667 feet every second.
That's like asking "How many feet are there in one length ?" The "longitude" of a place is an angle. You can measure it and describe it in any angle units. "Degree" is one possibility of something to use.
Nine feet in one second = 6.14 mph
102.7 feet every second at 70mph
About 1.47 feet per second for every one mile per hour.
At the temperature of 20 degrees Celsius the sound travels 343 meters in one second or 1125.328 feet in one second. That is 20580 meters in one minute or 67523 feet in one minute.
Canada has the second greatest longitude, meaning it has the second greatest distance from one farthest point to the other. Usually, the largest countries are the longest.
830000000 km/hour = 830000000/3600 km/second = 230555.6 km/second = 756,416,010.5 feet/second
60 miles in one hour is the same as: 88 feet per second.
60 kilometers (km) per hour is equal to about 54.7 feet per second.
All longitudes converge at the north and south poles, so the distance representedby any change in longitude depends on where you are with respect to the equatorand the poles.One second of longitude corresponds to 101.36 feet along the equator, andzero distance at the poles.In between, it's(101.36 feet) x cosine (your latitude)
Feet refers to a distance while seconds is time, so you can't say that there are a certain number of feet in one second. You can however say that you travel a certain number of feet in one second, but that number depends on the velocity that you are traveling at.
16,200 feet per hour.
At two feet per second, you will travel 1.364 miles in one hour.
per one second, it is 200 feet length. in one minute, it wil be 200 x 60 = 12000 feet, ...etc.
