Considered as measurements of slower speeds, both **metres per second** and **feet per second** are less commonly used than other units of speed. Feet per second is even less commonly used, usually found to measure speeds in science of slow moving objects or vehicles. Metres per second are used in industries where km/h and mph do not cover the amount of speed taken for travel. Use our **converter ft/s to m/s** for your calculations, or our other speed converters that are available.

Input above in our **ft/s to m/s calculator**, the amount of feet per second that you wish to change and click “convert” to be given the amount in metres per second. For the opposite conversion, go to **convert metres per second to feet per second**.

When doing this **feet per second – metres per second conversion**, you might need or want to know the mathematical formula that is involved so you can do it yourself so we have included it below. For example, 12 ft/s = 3.66 m/s and 41 ft/s = 12.5 m/s

**[number of] feet per second x 0.3048 = [number of] metres per second**

Not considered as a common or mainstream measurement of speed, **feet per second** is another type of unit of speed. It is used to calculate speeds of slower moving objects. Feet per second is often found to be used in chemistry and physics, where you may need to convert measurements in other speed units. Try out our **feet/s to metres/s calculator**.

**Metres per second** are defined by the amount of distance travelled in metres, divided by the time it took in seconds. As a unit of speed used to measure slower speeds, metres per second are used less commonly in everyday situations. The most common industry to use m/s is in astronomy, however, sometimes m/s is still too slow so km/s is used. View our **feet per second- metres per second converter** above.
