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 390 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 390 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

390 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 390 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 118.872 m/s

The final result is:

390 ft/s → 118.872 m/s

We conclude that 390 feet per second is equivalent to 118.872 meters per second:

390 feet per second = 118.872 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 0.0084124099872131 × 390 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 390 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0084124099872131 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 ninety feet per second is approximately one hundred eighteen point eight seven two meters per second:

390 ft/s ≅ 118.872 m/s

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