# Walking Time Calculator

How Long Does it Take to Walk 900 Feet?

The time it takes to walk 900 feet depends on several factors, including the individual's walking speed. On average, a person walking at a moderate pace of around 3 miles per hour covers about 1.4 feet per second. If we use this average pace, we can estimate the time it takes to walk 900 feet:

Time = Distance / Speed

Time = 900 feet / 1.4 feet per second

Time ≈ 642.9 seconds

So, it would take approximately 643 seconds to walk 900 feet at a moderate pace of 3 miles per hour. To convert this to minutes, you can divide by 60:

643 seconds / 60 seconds per minute ≈ 10.72 minutes

Therefore, it would take approximately 10.72 minutes to walk 900 feet at a moderate pace. Keep in mind that individual walking speeds can vary, so this is just a rough.

If you want to calculate the time it takes to walk 900 feet in PHP, you can use the following code snippet:

``````<?php

// Function to calculate walking time
function calculateWalkingTime(\$distance, \$speed) {
// Time = Distance / Speed
\$time = \$distance / \$speed;

return \$time;
}

// Given values
\$distanceInFeet = 900;
\$speedInFeetPerSecond = 1.4; // Average walking speed in feet per second

// Calculate walking time
\$walkingTimeInSeconds = calculateWalkingTime(\$distanceInFeet, \$speedInFeetPerSecond);

// Convert seconds to minutes
\$walkingTimeInMinutes = \$walkingTimeInSeconds / 60;

// Output the result
echo "It would take approximately " . round(\$walkingTimeInMinutes, 2) . " minutes to walk 900 feet at a moderate pace.";

?>
``````

This PHP code defines a function `calculateWalkingTime` that takes the distance in feet and the walking speed in feet per second as parameters and returns the calculated time. The given values for distance and speed are then used to calculate the walking time and convert it from seconds to minutes for a more user-friendly output. The result is echoed to the screen. Adjust the speed value as needed for different walking speeds.

You can modify the HTML form to include a dropdown menu for the unit of distance (feet, yards, or miles). Here's an updated version of the code:

This updated code includes a dropdown menu (`<select>`) allowing the user to choose the unit of distance (feet, yards, or miles). The PHP code then converts the entered distance to feet based on the selected unit before performing the walking time calculation.
