## 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 130 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 130 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

130 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 130 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 39.624 m/s

The final result is:

130 ft/s → 39.624 m/s

We conclude that 130 feet per second is equivalent to 39.624 meters per second:

130 feet per second = 39.624 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 0.025237229961639 × 130 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 130 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.025237229961639 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 thirty feet per second is approximately thirty-nine point six two four meters per second:

130 ft/s ≅ 39.624 m/s

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