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 1340 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 1340 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

1340 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 1340 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 408.432 m/s

The final result is:

1340 ft/s → 408.432 m/s

We conclude that 1340 feet per second is equivalent to 408.432 meters per second:

1340 feet per second = 408.432 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 0.0024483879813531 × 1340 feet per second.
