Feet (ft) to Meters (m) Converter

This length unit converter dynamically calculates a value you enter in feet (ft) and converts it to meters (m), or a value you enter in feet & inches (ft & in) and converts it to meters (m).

How many feet (ft) are in 1 meter (m)? What is the formula for how to convert feet to meters (ft to m)?

1 foot (ft) = 0.3048 meter (m)
So we can say that there is 0.3048 meter in 1 foot.
This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a meter unit of measurement is 0.3048.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

1 meter (m) = 3.2808398950131 feet (ft)
So we can say that there is 3.2808398950131 feet in 1 meter.
This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a meter unit of measurement is 3.2808398950131.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in feet to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in meters (ft to m). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

m = ft ร— 0.3048 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

m = ft รท 3.2808398950131 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 6.5 feet that you want to convert to meters, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

m = 6.5 ft ร— 0.3048 = 1.9812 m
m = 6.5 ft รท 3.2808398950131 = 1.9812 m

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 1.9812 meters.

What is the formula for how to convert feet & inches to Meters (ft & in to m)?

Here are the formulas and steps to convert a certain length expressed in feet & inches, such as a personโ€™s height, to meters. As an example, letโ€™s use the height of NBA player Luka Doncic who is reported to be 6 feet & 7 inches tall, and convert it to meters:

  1. Convert feet to meters: Multiply the number of feet by 0.3048 (since 1 foot = 0.3048 m).
6 feet ร— 0.3048 = 1.8288 meters
  1. Convert inches to meters: Multiply the number of inches by 0.0254 (since 1 inch = 0.0254 m).
7 inches ร— 0.0254 = 0.1778 meters
  1. Combine the results: Add the results from steps 1 and 2 to get the total height in meters.
1.8288 meters + 0.1778 meters = 2.0066 meters

So, Luka Doncicโ€™s reported height of 6 feet & 7 inches is equal to 2.0066 meters.

Feet to meters (ft to m) conversion charts

To save you time and effort spent on having to perform manual calculations or look up conversion formulas every time a conversion from feet to meters is needed, here is a feet-to-meters conversion chart for your quick and easy reference. This conversion chart (or conversion table) shows common measurement values of length in feet and their equivalent measurement values in meters. These equivalent measurement values may be rounded off to 1 or 2 decimal places when it is mathematically expedient for everyday applications. Shown here also is second conversion chart of values in the combined mixed format of โ€˜feet & inchesโ€™ and their equivalent values in meters.
