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 243 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 243 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

243 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 243 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 74.0664 m/s

The final result is:

243 ft/s → 74.0664 m/s

We conclude that 243 feet per second is equivalent to 74.0664 meters per second:

243 feet per second = 74.0664 meters per second

243 feet per second is equal to 74.066 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 0.01350139874491 × 243 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 243 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.01350139874491 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 forty-three feet per second is approximately seventy-four point zero six six meters per second:

243 ft/s ≅ 74.066 m/s

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