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 68 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 68 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

68 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 68 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 20.7264 m/s

The final result is:

68 ft/s → 20.7264 m/s

We conclude that 68 feet per second is equivalent to 20.7264 meters per second:

68 feet per second = 20.7264 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 0.048247645514899 × 68 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 68 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.048247645514899 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that sixty-eight feet per second is approximately twenty point seven two six meters per second:

68 ft/s ≅ 20.726 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero four eight times sixty-eight feet per second.
