## 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 485 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 485 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

485 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 485 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 147.828 m/s

The final result is:

485 ft/s → 147.828 m/s

We conclude that 485 feet per second is equivalent to 147.828 meters per second:

485 feet per second = 147.828 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 0.0067646183402332 × 485 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 485 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0067646183402332 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-five feet per second is approximately one hundred forty-seven point eight two eight meters per second:

485 ft/s ≅ 147.828 m/s

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