    You can't, the dimensions of what is in that tiny bitmap are [L][T]^{-2} not [L][T]^{-1} which is what you need if it is to be converted to ft/s.

    If you want to convert to f/s^2 just multiply by the metres to feet conversion factor.

    (radians are dimensionless)

    Im confuse in that computation if that rad/sec should be included because its the answer of my previous problem. Since you said that this cannot be converted. Im pretty sure now that it should not be there. So without that it would be easy for me to convert meter/sec to ft/sec.

    thanks for the help

    Yes, just multiply by the metres to feet conversion factor, Google will tell you what it is if you do not know.
