Conversion formula

The conversion factor from feet per second to knots is 0.59248380129641, which means that 1 foot per second is equal to 0.59248380129641 knots:

1 ft/s = 0.59248380129641 kt

To convert 1 foot per second into knots we have to multiply 1 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from feet per second to knots. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 ft/s → 0.59248380129641 kt

1 ft/s → V(kt)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in knots:

V(kt) = 1 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 0.59248380129641 kt

The final result is:

1 ft/s → 0.59248380129641 kt

We conclude that 1 foot per second is equivalent to 0.59248380129641 knots:

1 foot per second = 0.59248380129641 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 1.6878098570997 × 1 foot per second.

Another way is saying that 1 foot per second is equal to 1 ÷ 1.6878098570997 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one foot per second is approximately zero point five nine two knots:

1 ft/s ≅ 0.592 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately one point six eight eight times one foot per second.
