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 455 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 455 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

455 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 455 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 138.684 m/s

The final result is:

455 ft/s → 138.684 m/s

We conclude that 455 feet per second is equivalent to 138.684 meters per second:

455 feet per second = 138.684 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 0.007210637131897 × 455 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 455 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.007210637131897 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 fifty-five feet per second is approximately one hundred thirty-eight point six eight four meters per second:

455 ft/s ≅ 138.684 m/s

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