## 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 478 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 478 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

478 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 478 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 145.6944 m/s

The final result is:

478 ft/s → 145.6944 m/s

We conclude that 478 feet per second is equivalent to 145.6944 meters per second:

478 feet per second = 145.6944 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 0.0068636817887304 × 478 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 478 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0068636817887304 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-eight feet per second is approximately one hundred forty-five point six nine four meters per second:

478 ft/s ≅ 145.694 m/s

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