## 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 255 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 255 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

255 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 255 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 77.724 m/s

The final result is:

255 ft/s → 77.724 m/s

We conclude that 255 feet per second is equivalent to 77.724 meters per second:

255 feet per second = 77.724 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 0.012866038803973 × 255 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 255 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012866038803973 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 fifty-five feet per second is approximately seventy-seven point seven two four meters per second:

255 ft/s ≅ 77.724 m/s

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