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 381 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 381 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

381 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 381 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 116.1288 m/s

The final result is:

381 ft/s → 116.1288 m/s

We conclude that 381 feet per second is equivalent to 116.1288 meters per second:

381 feet per second = 116.1288 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 0.0086111283333678 × 381 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 381 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0086111283333678 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that three hundred eighty-one feet per second is approximately one hundred sixteen point one two nine meters per second:

381 ft/s ≅ 116.129 m/s

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