An important part of any mathematical problem is to make sure that the units of measurement are standardised. If a problem quotes lengths in yards, feet and inches and the answer has to be expressed in inches then the yards and feet measurements need to be converted to inches. Equally, is the speed of a caterpillar crawling along a twig is measured in inches per minute but the speed needs to be expressed in miles per hour then two lots of conversions are required ; inches to miles and seconds to hours. A set of conversion tables for both imperial and metric measurements are essential for this kind of work.

The garden snail is the fastest land snail. It can travel at a speed of 0.03 miles per hour. Snails are gastropods that move by crawling on a single foot.

30 times as much, since a minute has 60 seconds.

to convert revolutions per minute into the measure of degrees traveled, you would need to know for how long those revolutions were going on. revolutions per minute multiplied by the time it was turning gives you the degrees traveled. just like speed * time gives you distance, rotational speed * time gives you rotated distance

Just like any other unit of distance, it all depends on your speed. For example . . . -- If your speed is one knot, then it takes 1 hour. -- If your speed is 60 knots, then it takes one minute. -- If your speed is 3,600 knots, then it takes one second.

Snails move about 3 inches (8cm) per minute.

A garden snail goes to a speed of 0.03 mph. An average snail gets 2.36 inches in a minute, and per day about 2.8 m.

Snail SpeedSnails move by alternating body contractions with stretching, with a proverbially low speed (1 mm/s) is a typical speed for an adult. So to answer your question that would be about 60 mm or 2.36 inches per minute on average depending on the exact type of snail and terrain.

A 2013 study from the University of Exeter, UK, determined that the top speed of a common garden snail is about one metre or 1000 mm per hour,which equals about 16.6 mm per minute.

1.26 inches per min. * 60 = 75.6 inches per hour.4.80 hours * 75.6 inches per hour = 362.88 inches traveled.362.88 inches / 12 = 30.24 feet traveled.

Garden snail, 0.03 mph

Yes, it is; distance/time is a speed determination. However, it would only be a USEFUL metric if we were talking about the speed of a snail, or moss growing.
