Enter the speed in meters per second below to get the value converted to feet per second.

Results in Feet Per Second: 1 m/s = 3.28084 ft/s

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

To convert a meter per second measurement to a foot per second measurement, multiply the speed by the conversion ratio.

Since one meter per second is equal to 3.28084 feet per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

feet per second = meters per second × 3.28084

The speed in feet per second is equal to the meters per second multiplied by 3.28084.

For example, here's how to convert 5 meters per second to feet per second using the formula above.
5 m/s = (5 × 3.28084) = 16.404199 ft/s

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

## Meters Per Second

Meters per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled 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.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.

Meters per second can be expressed using the formula:
vm/s = dm / tsec

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

## Feet Per Second

Feet per second are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled 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:
vft/s = dft / tsec

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