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 1008 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 1008 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

1008 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 1008 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 597.22367170678 kt

The final result is:

1008 ft/s → 597.22367170678 kt

We conclude that 1008 feet per second is equivalent to 597.22367170678 knots:

1008 feet per second = 597.22367170678 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0016744145407735 × 1008 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 1008 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0016744145407735 knots.

Approximate result

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

1008 ft/s ≅ 597.224 kt

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