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 285 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 285 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

285 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 285 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 86.868 m/s

The final result is:

285 ft/s → 86.868 m/s

We conclude that 285 feet per second is equivalent to 86.868 meters per second:

285 feet per second = 86.868 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 0.011511718929871 × 285 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 285 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.011511718929871 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 eighty-five feet per second is approximately eighty-six point eight six eight meters per second:

285 ft/s ≅ 86.868 m/s

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