## 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 1179 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 1179 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

1179 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 1179 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 359.3592 m/s

The final result is:

1179 ft/s → 359.3592 m/s

We conclude that 1179 feet per second is equivalent to 359.3592 meters per second:

1179 feet per second = 359.3592 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 0.0027827310390272 × 1179 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 1179 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0027827310390272 meters per second.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one thousand one hundred seventy-nine feet per second is approximately three hundred fifty-nine point three five nine meters per second:

1179 ft/s ≅ 359.359 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero three times one thousand one hundred seventy-nine feet per second.
