## 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 196 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 196 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

196 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 196 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 59.7408 m/s

The final result is:

196 ft/s → 59.7408 m/s

We conclude that 196 feet per second is equivalent to 59.7408 meters per second:

196 feet per second = 59.7408 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 0.016738979056189 × 196 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 196 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.016738979056189 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 ninety-six feet per second is approximately fifty-nine point seven four one meters per second:

196 ft/s ≅ 59.741 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero one seven times one hundred ninety-six feet per second.
