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 518 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 518 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

518 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 518 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 157.8864 m/s

The final result is:

518 ft/s → 157.8864 m/s

We conclude that 518 feet per second is equivalent to 157.8864 meters per second:

518 feet per second = 157.8864 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 0.0063336677509906 × 518 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 518 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0063336677509906 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 eighteen feet per second is approximately one hundred fifty-seven point eight eight six meters per second:

518 ft/s ≅ 157.886 m/s

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