## 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 3872 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 3872 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

3872 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 3872 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 1180.1856 m/s

The final result is:

3872 ft/s → 1180.1856 m/s

We conclude that 3872 feet per second is equivalent to 1180.1856 meters per second:

3872 feet per second = 1180.1856 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 0.00084732435305091 × 3872 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 3872 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00084732435305091 meters per second.

## Approximate result

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

3872 ft/s ≅ 1180.186 m/s

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