## 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 142 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 142 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

142 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 142 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 43.2816 m/s

The final result is:

142 ft/s → 43.2816 m/s

We conclude that 142 feet per second is equivalent to 43.2816 meters per second:

142 feet per second = 43.2816 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 0.023104506302909 × 142 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 142 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.023104506302909 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 forty-two feet per second is approximately forty-three point two eight two meters per second:

142 ft/s ≅ 43.282 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero two three times one hundred forty-two feet per second.
