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 4860 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 4860 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

4860 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 4860 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 1481.328 m/s

The final result is:

4860 ft/s → 1481.328 m/s

We conclude that 4860 feet per second is equivalent to 1481.328 meters per second:

4860 feet per second = 1481.328 meters per second
