Conversion formula

The conversion factor from knots to feet per second is 1.6878098570997, which means that 1 knot is equal to 1.6878098570997 feet per second:

1 kt = 1.6878098570997 ft/s

To convert 1006 knots into feet per second we have to multiply 1006 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from knots to feet per second. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 kt → 1.6878098570997 ft/s

1006 kt → V(ft/s)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in feet per second:

V(ft/s) = 1006 kt × 1.6878098570997 ft/s

V(ft/s) = 1697.9367162423 ft/s

The final result is:

1006 kt → 1697.9367162423 ft/s

We conclude that 1006 knots is equivalent to 1697.9367162423 feet per second:

1006 knots = 1697.9367162423 feet per second
