## 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 161 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 161 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

161 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 161 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 49.0728 m/s

The final result is:

161 ft/s → 49.0728 m/s

We conclude that 161 feet per second is equivalent to 49.0728 meters per second:

161 feet per second = 49.0728 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 0.020377887546665 × 161 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 161 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.020377887546665 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 sixty-one feet per second is approximately forty-nine point zero seven three meters per second:

161 ft/s ≅ 49.073 m/s

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