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 12.8 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 12.8 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

12.8 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 12.8 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 3.90144 m/s

The final result is:

12.8 ft/s → 3.90144 m/s

We conclude that 12.8 feet per second is equivalent to 3.90144 meters per second:

12.8 feet per second = 3.90144 meters per second

12.8 feet per second is equal to 3.901 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 0.2563156167979 × 12.8 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 12.8 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.2563156167979 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that twelve point eight feet per second is approximately three point nine zero one meters per second:

12.8 ft/s ≅ 3.901 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point two five six times twelve point eight feet per second.
