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 430 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 430 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

430 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 430 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 131.064 m/s

The final result is:

430 ft/s → 131.064 m/s

We conclude that 430 feet per second is equivalent to 131.064 meters per second:

430 feet per second = 131.064 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 0.0076298602209608 × 430 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 430 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0076298602209608 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 thirty feet per second is approximately one hundred thirty-one point zero six four meters per second:

430 ft/s ≅ 131.064 m/s

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