Enter the distance and speed into the calculator to determine the time in milliseconds. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Feet To Milliseconds Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the time in milliseconds it takes to travel a certain distance in feet, given a certain speed.

T = (D / S) * 1000


  • T is the time in milliseconds (ms)
  • D is the distance in feet (ft)
  • S is the speed in feet per second (ft/s)

To calculate the time in milliseconds, divide the distance in feet by the speed in feet per second. Then, multiply the result by 1000 to convert the time from seconds to milliseconds.

What is Feet To Milliseconds?

Feet to Milliseconds is not a standard conversion as they represent two different types of measurements. Feet is a unit of length in the imperial system, commonly used in the United States to measure distance. Milliseconds, on the other hand, is a unit of time equal to one thousandth of a second. Therefore, a conversion from feet to milliseconds would typically involve a rate of speed or velocity, such as the speed of sound or light, to determine the time it takes to travel a certain distance.

How to Calculate Feet To Milliseconds?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Feet To Milliseconds using the formula: T = (D / S) * 1000

  1. First, determine the distance in feet (D).
  2. Next, determine the speed in feet per second (S).
  3. Next, use the formula T = (D / S) * 1000 to calculate the time in milliseconds (T).
  4. Finally, calculate the Feet To Milliseconds.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

distance in feet (D) = 500

speed in feet per second (S) = 50
