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 501 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 501 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

501 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 501 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 152.7048 m/s

The final result is:

501 ft/s → 152.7048 m/s

We conclude that 501 feet per second is equivalent to 152.7048 meters per second:

501 feet per second = 152.7048 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 0.0065485826247767 × 501 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 501 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0065485826247767 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that five hundred one feet per second is approximately one hundred fifty-two point seven zero five meters per second:

501 ft/s ≅ 152.705 m/s

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