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 500 feet per second into kilometers per hour we have to multiply 500 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

500 ft/s → V(km/h)

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

V(km/h) = 500 ft/s × 1.0972799999991 km/h

V(km/h) = 548.63999999956 km/h

The final result is:

500 ft/s → 548.63999999956 km/h

We conclude that 500 feet per second is equivalent to 548.63999999956 kilometers per hour:

500 feet per second = 548.63999999956 kilometers per hour
