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 262 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 262 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

262 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 262 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 79.8576 m/s

The final result is:

262 ft/s → 79.8576 m/s

We conclude that 262 feet per second is equivalent to 79.8576 meters per second:

262 feet per second = 79.8576 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 0.012522289675623 × 262 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 262 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012522289675623 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 sixty-two feet per second is approximately seventy-nine point eight five eight meters per second:

262 ft/s ≅ 79.858 m/s

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