## 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 480 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 480 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

480 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 480 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 146.304 m/s

The final result is:

480 ft/s → 146.304 m/s

We conclude that 480 feet per second is equivalent to 146.304 meters per second:

480 feet per second = 146.304 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 0.0068350831146107 × 480 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 480 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0068350831146107 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 eighty feet per second is approximately one hundred forty-six point three zero four meters per second:

480 ft/s ≅ 146.304 m/s

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