## 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 217 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 217 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

217 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 217 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 66.1416 m/s

The final result is:

217 ft/s → 66.1416 m/s

We conclude that 217 feet per second is equivalent to 66.1416 meters per second:

217 feet per second = 66.1416 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 0.015119077857203 × 217 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 217 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.015119077857203 meters per second.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that two hundred seventeen feet per second is approximately sixty-six point one four two meters per second:

217 ft/s ≅ 66.142 m/s

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