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 449 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 449 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

449 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 449 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 136.8552 m/s

The final result is:

449 ft/s → 136.8552 m/s

We conclude that 449 feet per second is equivalent to 136.8552 meters per second:

449 feet per second = 136.8552 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 0.0073069930846617 × 449 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 449 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0073069930846617 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 forty-nine feet per second is approximately one hundred thirty-six point eight five five meters per second:

449 ft/s ≅ 136.855 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero seven times four hundred forty-nine feet per second.
