Speed in **feet per second (ft/s, ft s ^{-1})**

**:**

Result in **meters per second (m/s, m s ^{-1}):**

## How to convert speed from feet per second to meters per second?

*1 ft/s ≈ 0.3048 m/s*

*1 feet per second ≈ 0.3048 meters per second *

*Feet per second = ft / h = ft h ^{-1} = ft • h^{-1} = fps = foot per second*

*Meters per second (US) = metres per second (UK) = m / s = m s ^{-1} = m • s^{-1}*

Speed in meters per second is equal to speed in feet per second multiply by 0.3048.

Formulas:

*meters per second = feet per second x 0.3048*

υ_{m/s} = υ_{ft/s} x 0.3048

* υ_{m/s}* – speed in meters per second;

* υ_{ft/s }– *speed in feet per second.

For example:

*Convert speed 10 ft/s to m/s.*

Solution: *υ _{m/s} = υ_{ft/s} x 0.3048*

*= 10 x 0.3048 = 3.05 m/s. Answer: 10 ft/s = 3.05 m/s*

*Convert speed 20 ft/s to m/s.*

Solution: *υ _{m/s} = υ_{ft/s} *

*x 0.3048*

*= 20 x 0.3048 = 6.1 m/s. Answer: 20 ft/s = 6.1 m/s*
