Kilometers Per Second to Feet Per Second Conversion
Enter the speed in kilometers per second below to get the value converted to feet per second.
How to Convert Kilometers Per Second to Feet Per Second
To convert a kilometer per second measurement to a foot per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio. One kilometer per second is equal to 3,280.839895 feet per second, so use this simple formula to convert:
The speed in feet per second is equal to the kilometers per second multiplied by 3,280.839895.
Kilometers per second and feet per second are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
The kilometer per second, or kilometre per second, is an SI unit of speed in the metric system. Kilometers per second can be abbreviated as km/s, and are also sometimes abbreviated as km/sec. For example, 1 kilometer per second can be written as 1 km/s or 1 km/sec.
In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.
Kilometers per second can be expressed using the formula:
vkm/s = dkmtsec
The velocity in kilometers per second is equal to the distance in kilometers divided by time in seconds.
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:
vft/s = dfttsec
The velocity in feet per second is equal to the distance in feet divided by time in seconds.
