## 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 864 feet per second into meters per second we have to multiply 864 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

864 ft/s → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 864 ft/s × 0.3048 m/s

V(m/s) = 263.3472 m/s

The final result is:

864 ft/s → 263.3472 m/s

We conclude that 864 feet per second is equivalent to 263.3472 meters per second:

864 feet per second = 263.3472 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 0.0037972683970059 × 864 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 864 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0037972683970059 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 sixty-four feet per second is approximately two hundred sixty-three point three four seven meters per second:

864 ft/s ≅ 263.347 m/s

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