## 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 238 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 238 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

238 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 238 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 72.5424 m/s

The final result is:

238 ft/s → 72.5424 m/s

We conclude that 238 feet per second is equivalent to 72.5424 meters per second:

238 feet per second = 72.5424 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 0.013785041575685 × 238 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 238 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.013785041575685 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 thirty-eight feet per second is approximately seventy-two point five four two meters per second:

238 ft/s ≅ 72.542 m/s

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