## 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 257 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 257 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

257 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 257 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 78.3336 m/s

The final result is:

257 ft/s → 78.3336 m/s

We conclude that 257 feet per second is equivalent to 78.3336 meters per second:

257 feet per second = 78.3336 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 0.012765913988378 × 257 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 257 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012765913988378 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-seven feet per second is approximately seventy-eight point three three four meters per second:

257 ft/s ≅ 78.334 m/s

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