## 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 856 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 856 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

856 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 856 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 260.9088 m/s

The final result is:

856 ft/s → 260.9088 m/s

We conclude that 856 feet per second is equivalent to 260.9088 meters per second:

856 feet per second = 260.9088 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 0.0038327568866976 × 856 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 856 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0038327568866976 meters per second.

## Approximate result

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

856 ft/s ≅ 260.909 m/s

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