Conversion from Meters per second (m/s) to Feet per second (ft/s) and vice versa

Updated on by Stefan Banse

Here you can convert the Speed unit Meters per second into the unit Feet per second and vice versa you can convert Feet per second into Meters per second. By clicking the "Swap units" icon, you will always obtain the desired conversion in the calculation result, i.e., m/s to ft/s or ft/s to m/s. With the following calculator you can also calculate any other Speed unit.

Info about "Meters per second"

Meters per second is a basic unit for speed in the International System of Units (SI) and other metric systems. This is because both meter and second are the international base units for distance and time. Definition of "meters per second": An object moving at 1 "m/s" per second will cover a distance of one meter.

In our daily work, speed is commonly measured in km/h. The following rule is an easy way to remember when converting m/s into km/h: &qquot; multiply by four and minus 10 %". For example, standard walking speeds in meters per second are about 1 m/s for a walker, 10.44 m/s is the world record for running 100 meters, and the speed of sound is 343 meters per second.

As mentioned above, both meter and second are the international base units for distance and time. All other speed units in the metric system are derived based on meters per second (e.g. km/h, mm/s).

Info about "Feet per second"

The unit of length in feet is also very common in the Anglo-American countries, therefore speeds are also represented with feet per unit of time. In history, foot is equivalent to 28-32 cm in different countries. Nowadays only the English foot is used. 1 foot is equivalent to 30.48 centimeters and 1 foot is equivalent to 12 inches/inch.

p> It is defined as follows: An object moving at 1 "feet per second"for one second covers a distance of one feet. Therefore, 1 feet is equivalent to 30.48 centimeters.
