Feet per second and speed of sound 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.

## Speed Of Sound

The speed of sound is the distance a sound wave travels through an elastic medium. The speed of sound through air at 20 °C is equal to 343 meters per second, or roughly 767 miles per hour.
