## 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 1606 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 1606 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

1606 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 1606 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 489.5088 m/s

The final result is:

1606 ft/s → 489.5088 m/s

We conclude that 1606 feet per second is equivalent to 489.5088 meters per second:

1606 feet per second = 489.5088 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 0.002042864193657 × 1606 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 1606 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.002042864193657 meters per second.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one thousand six hundred six feet per second is approximately four hundred eighty-nine point five zero nine meters per second:

1606 ft/s ≅ 489.509 m/s

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