## 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 1947 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 1947 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

1947 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 1947 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 593.4456 m/s

The final result is:

1947 ft/s → 593.4456 m/s

We conclude that 1947 feet per second is equivalent to 593.4456 meters per second:

1947 feet per second = 593.4456 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 0.0016850744196267 × 1947 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 1947 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0016850744196267 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 nine hundred forty-seven feet per second is approximately five hundred ninety-three point four four six meters per second:

1947 ft/s ≅ 593.446 m/s

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