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 10.8 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 10.8 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

10.8 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 10.8 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 6.3988250540012 kt

The final result is:

10.8 ft/s → 6.3988250540012 kt

We conclude that 10.8 feet per second is equivalent to 6.3988250540012 knots:

10.8 feet per second = 6.3988250540012 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.1562786904722 × 10.8 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 10.8 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.1562786904722 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that ten point eight feet per second is approximately six point three nine nine knots:

10.8 ft/s ≅ 6.399 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point one five six times ten point eight feet per second.
