## 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*.
