## 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 477 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 477 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

477 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 477 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 145.3896 m/s

The final result is:

477 ft/s → 145.3896 m/s

We conclude that 477 feet per second is equivalent to 145.3896 meters per second:

477 feet per second = 145.3896 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 0.0068780710587277 × 477 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 477 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0068780710587277 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-seven feet per second is approximately one hundred forty-five point three nine meters per second:

477 ft/s ≅ 145.39 m/s

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