## 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 542 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 542 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

542 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 542 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 165.2016 m/s

The final result is:

542 ft/s → 165.2016 m/s

We conclude that 542 feet per second is equivalent to 165.2016 meters per second:

542 feet per second = 165.2016 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 0.0060532101384006 × 542 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 542 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0060532101384006 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 forty-two feet per second is approximately one hundred sixty-five point two zero two meters per second:

542 ft/s ≅ 165.202 m/s

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