Conversion formula

The conversion factor from feet per second to meters per second is 0.3048, which means that 1 foot per second is equal to 0.3048 meters per second:

1 ft/s = 0.3048 m/s

To convert 117 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 117 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from feet per second to meters per second. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 ft/s → 0.3048 m/s

117 ft/s → V(m/s)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in meters per second:

V(m/s) = 117 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 35.6616 m/s

The final result is:

117 ft/s → 35.6616 m/s

We conclude that 117 feet per second is equivalent to 35.6616 meters per second:

117 feet per second = 35.6616 meters per second

117 feet per second is equal to 35.662 meters per second

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter per second is equal to 0.028041366624044 × 117 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 117 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.028041366624044 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred seventeen feet per second is approximately thirty-five point six six two meters per second:

117 ft/s ≅ 35.662 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero two eight times one hundred seventeen feet per second.
