## 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 157 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 157 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

157 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 157 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 47.8536 m/s

The final result is:

157 ft/s → 47.8536 m/s

We conclude that 157 feet per second is equivalent to 47.8536 meters per second:

157 feet per second = 47.8536 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 0.020897069394988 × 157 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 157 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.020897069394988 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 fifty-seven feet per second is approximately forty-seven point eight five four meters per second:

157 ft/s ≅ 47.854 m/s

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