Conversion formula

The conversion factor from feet per second to kilometers per hour is 1.0972799999991, which means that 1 foot per second is equal to 1.0972799999991 kilometers per hour:

1 ft/s = 1.0972799999991 km/h

To convert 5 feet per second into kilometers per hour we have to multiply 5 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from feet per second to kilometers per hour. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 ft/s → 1.0972799999991 km/h

5 ft/s → V(km/h)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in kilometers per hour:

V(km/h) = 5 ft/s × 1.0972799999991 km/h

V(km/h) = 5.4863999999956 km/h

The final result is:

5 ft/s → 5.4863999999956 km/h

We conclude that 5 feet per second is equivalent to 5.4863999999956 kilometers per hour:

5 feet per second = 5.4863999999956 kilometers per hour
