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 717 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 717 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

717 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 717 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 218.5416 m/s

The final result is:

717 ft/s → 218.5416 m/s

We conclude that 717 feet per second is equivalent to 218.5416 meters per second:

717 feet per second = 218.5416 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 0.0045757878591536 × 717 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 717 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0045757878591536 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that seven hundred seventeen feet per second is approximately two hundred eighteen point five four two meters per second:

717 ft/s ≅ 218.542 m/s

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