## 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 471 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 471 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

471 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 471 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 143.5608 m/s

The final result is:

471 ft/s → 143.5608 m/s

We conclude that 471 feet per second is equivalent to 143.5608 meters per second:

471 feet per second = 143.5608 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 0.0069656897983293 × 471 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 471 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0069656897983293 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-one feet per second is approximately one hundred forty-three point five six one meters per second:

471 ft/s ≅ 143.561 m/s

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