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 1006 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 1006 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

1006 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 1006 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 596.03870410419 kt

The final result is:

1006 ft/s → 596.03870410419 kt

We conclude that 1006 feet per second is equivalent to 596.03870410419 knots:

1006 feet per second = 596.03870410419 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0016777433967194 × 1006 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 1006 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0016777433967194 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one thousand six feet per second is approximately five hundred ninety-six point zero three nine knots:

1006 ft/s ≅ 596.039 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero zero two times one thousand six feet per second.
