Find the necessary CFM value easily using our online converter, simply entering the FPM and the area. For the area value, there is an option to choose the exact unit of measurement you need, like mm², m², acre, or others.
Convert FPM to CFM
Converting from feet per minute (FPM) to cubic feet per minute (CFM) is often used in the airflow or ventilation systems. The conversion is necessary when dealing with volumetric flow rates, particularly in applications where the volume of air moved per unit of time is crucial.
Feet per minute (FPM) typically represents the linear velocity of air or fluid moving through a duct or a space. On the other hand, cubic feet per minute (CFM) means the volume of air that flows through a given point in the same amount of time.
The conversion involves multiplying the linear velocity (FPM) by the cross-sectional area through which the air flows.
CFM - cubic feet per minute (ft³/min),
FPM - feet per minute (ft/min),
A - Area.
