## 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 689 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 689 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

689 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 689 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 210.0072 m/s

The final result is:

689 ft/s → 210.0072 m/s

We conclude that 689 feet per second is equivalent to 210.0072 meters per second:

689 feet per second = 210.0072 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 0.0047617415021961 × 689 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 689 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0047617415021961 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 eighty-nine feet per second is approximately two hundred ten point zero zero seven meters per second:

689 ft/s ≅ 210.007 m/s

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