## 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 401 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 401 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

401 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 401 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 122.2248 m/s

The final result is:

401 ft/s → 122.2248 m/s

We conclude that 401 feet per second is equivalent to 122.2248 meters per second:

401 feet per second = 122.2248 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 0.0081816456234741 × 401 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 401 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0081816456234741 meters per second.

## Approximate result

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

401 ft/s ≅ 122.225 m/s

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