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 474 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 474 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

474 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 474 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 144.4752 m/s

The final result is:

474 ft/s → 144.4752 m/s

We conclude that 474 feet per second is equivalent to 144.4752 meters per second:

474 feet per second = 144.4752 meters per second

474 feet per second is equal to 144.475 meters per second
