## 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 796 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 796 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

796 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 796 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 242.6208 m/s

The final result is:

796 ft/s → 242.6208 m/s

We conclude that 796 feet per second is equivalent to 242.6208 meters per second:

796 feet per second = 242.6208 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 0.0041216581595642 × 796 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 796 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0041216581595642 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 ninety-six feet per second is approximately two hundred forty-two point six two one meters per second:

796 ft/s ≅ 242.621 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero four times seven hundred ninety-six feet per second.
