## 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 180 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 180 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

180 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 180 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 54.864 m/s

The final result is:

180 ft/s → 54.864 m/s

We conclude that 180 feet per second is equivalent to 54.864 meters per second:

180 feet per second = 54.864 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 0.018226888305628 × 180 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 180 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.018226888305628 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 eighty feet per second is approximately fifty-four point eight six four meters per second:

180 ft/s ≅ 54.864 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero one eight times one hundred eighty feet per second.
