## 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 588 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 588 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

588 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 588 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 179.2224 m/s

The final result is:

588 ft/s → 179.2224 m/s

We conclude that 588 feet per second is equivalent to 179.2224 meters per second:

588 feet per second = 179.2224 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 0.0055796596853965 × 588 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 588 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0055796596853965 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 eighty-eight feet per second is approximately one hundred seventy-nine point two two two meters per second:

588 ft/s ≅ 179.222 m/s

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