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 470 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 470 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

470 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 470 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 143.256 m/s

The final result is:

470 ft/s → 143.256 m/s

We conclude that 470 feet per second is equivalent to 143.256 meters per second:

470 feet per second = 143.256 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 0.0069805104149215 × 470 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 470 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0069805104149215 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 seventy feet per second is approximately one hundred forty-three point two five six meters per second:

470 ft/s ≅ 143.256 m/s

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