## 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 5580 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 5580 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

5580 ft/s → V_{(m/s)}

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

V_{(m/s)} = 5580 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V_{(m/s)} = 1700.784 m/s

The final result is:

5580 ft/s → 1700.784 m/s

We conclude that **5580 feet per second is equivalent to 1700.784 meters per second**:

5580 feet per second = 1700.784 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 0.00058796413889124 × 5580 feet per second**.

Another way is saying that *5580 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00058796413889124 meters per second*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **five thousand five hundred eighty feet per second is approximately one thousand seven hundred point seven eight four meters per second**:

5580 ft/s ≅ 1700.784 m/s

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