# How many feet per second is 23 joules a sec?

May 26, 2015

A joule is the amount of energy required to accelerate a mass of one $\text{kilogram}$ by one ${\text{meter/second}}^{2}$ over a distance of one $\text{meter}$

There is no direct conversion of joules into velocity (i.e. your "feet per second")

The following conversion factors might be of use:
1 foot = 0.3048 meters
1 meter = 3.28084 feet

1 pound = 0.453592 kilograms
1 kilogram = 2.20462 pounds
