## 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 172 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 172 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

172 ft/s → V_{(m/s)}

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

V_{(m/s)} = 172 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V_{(m/s)} = 52.4256 m/s

The final result is:

172 ft/s → 52.4256 m/s

We conclude that **172 feet per second is equivalent to 52.4256 meters per second**:

172 feet per second = 52.4256 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 0.019074650552402 × 172 feet per second**.

Another way is saying that *172 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.019074650552402 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 seventy-two feet per second is approximately fifty-two point four two six meters per second**:

172 ft/s ≅ 52.426 m/s

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