## 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 563 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 563 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

563 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 563 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 171.6024 m/s

The final result is:

563 ft/s → 171.6024 m/s

We conclude that 563 feet per second is equivalent to 171.6024 meters per second:

563 feet per second = 171.6024 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 0.0058274243250677 × 563 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 563 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0058274243250677 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 sixty-three feet per second is approximately one hundred seventy-one point six zero two meters per second:

563 ft/s ≅ 171.602 m/s

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