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 100 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 100 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

100 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 100 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 59.248380129641 kt

The final result is:

100 ft/s → 59.248380129641 kt

We conclude that 100 feet per second is equivalent to 59.248380129641 knots:

100 feet per second = 59.248380129641 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.016878098570997 × 100 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 100 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.016878098570997 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred feet per second is approximately fifty-nine point two four eight knots:

100 ft/s ≅ 59.248 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero one seven times one hundred feet per second.
