## How to Convert Feet Per Second to Meters Per Second

To convert a foot per second measurement to a meter per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One foot per second is equal to 0.3048 meters per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in meters per second is equal to the feet per second multiplied by 0.3048.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 feet per second to meters per second using the formula above.

Feet per second and meters per second are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Feet Per Second

Feet per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in feet in one second.

The foot per second is a US customary and imperial unit of speed. Feet per second can be abbreviated as *ft/s*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *ft/sec* or *fps*. For example, 1 foot per second can be written as 1 ft/s, 1 ft/sec, or 1 fps.

Feet per second can be expressed using the formula:

v_{ft/s} = d_{ft}t_{sec}

The velocity in feet per second is equal to the distance in feet divided by time in seconds.

## Meters Per Second

Meters per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance travelled in meters in one second.

The meter per second, or metre per second, is the SI derived unit for speed in the metric system. Meters per second can be abbreviated as *m/s*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *m/sec*. For example, 1 meter per second can be written as 1 m/s or 1 m/sec.

Meters per second can be expressed using the formula:

v_{m/s} = d_{m}t_{sec}

The velocity in meters per second is equal to the distance in meters divided by time in seconds.
