## 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 422 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 422 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

422 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 422 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 128.6256 m/s

The final result is:

422 ft/s → 128.6256 m/s

We conclude that 422 feet per second is equivalent to 128.6256 meters per second:

422 feet per second = 128.6256 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 0.0077745021208842 × 422 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 422 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0077745021208842 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 twenty-two feet per second is approximately one hundred twenty-eight point six two six meters per second:

422 ft/s ≅ 128.626 m/s

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