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 508 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 508 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

508 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 508 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 154.8384 m/s

The final result is:

508 ft/s → 154.8384 m/s

We conclude that 508 feet per second is equivalent to 154.8384 meters per second:

508 feet per second = 154.8384 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 0.0064583462500258 × 508 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 508 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0064583462500258 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 eight feet per second is approximately one hundred fifty-four point eight three eight meters per second:

508 ft/s ≅ 154.838 m/s

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