## 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 229 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 229 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

229 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 229 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 69.7992 m/s

The final result is:

229 ft/s → 69.7992 m/s

We conclude that 229 feet per second is equivalent to 69.7992 meters per second:

229 feet per second = 69.7992 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 0.014326811768616 × 229 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 229 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.014326811768616 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 twenty-nine feet per second is approximately sixty-nine point seven nine nine meters per second:

229 ft/s ≅ 69.799 m/s

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