## 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 388 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 388 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

388 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 388 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 118.2624 m/s

The final result is:

388 ft/s → 118.2624 m/s

We conclude that 388 feet per second is equivalent to 118.2624 meters per second:

388 feet per second = 118.2624 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 0.0084557729252916 × 388 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 388 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0084557729252916 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-eight feet per second is approximately one hundred eighteen point two six two meters per second:

388 ft/s ≅ 118.262 m/s

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