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 462 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 462 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

462 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 462 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 140.8176 m/s

The final result is:

462 ft/s → 140.8176 m/s

We conclude that 462 feet per second is equivalent to 140.8176 meters per second:

462 feet per second = 140.8176 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 0.007101385054141 × 462 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 462 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.007101385054141 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 sixty-two feet per second is approximately one hundred forty point eight one eight meters per second:

462 ft/s ≅ 140.818 m/s

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