## 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 538 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 538 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

538 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 538 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 163.9824 m/s

The final result is:

538 ft/s → 163.9824 m/s

We conclude that 538 feet per second is equivalent to 163.9824 meters per second:

538 feet per second = 163.9824 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 0.00609821541824 × 538 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 538 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00609821541824 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 thirty-eight feet per second is approximately one hundred sixty-three point nine eight two meters per second:

538 ft/s ≅ 163.982 m/s

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