## 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 494 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 494 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

494 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 494 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 150.5712 m/s

The final result is:

494 ft/s → 150.5712 m/s

We conclude that 494 feet per second is equivalent to 150.5712 meters per second:

494 feet per second = 150.5712 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 0.0066413763056946 × 494 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 494 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0066413763056946 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 ninety-four feet per second is approximately one hundred fifty point five seven one meters per second:

494 ft/s ≅ 150.571 m/s

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