## 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 609 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 609 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

609 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 609 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 185.6232 m/s

The final result is:

609 ft/s → 185.6232 m/s

We conclude that 609 feet per second is equivalent to 185.6232 meters per second:

609 feet per second = 185.6232 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 0.0053872576272793 × 609 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 609 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0053872576272793 meters per second.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that six hundred nine feet per second is approximately one hundred eighty-five point six two three meters per second:

609 ft/s ≅ 185.623 m/s

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