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 1078 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 1078 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

1078 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 1078 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 638.69753779753 kt

The final result is:

1078 ft/s → 638.69753779753 kt

We conclude that 1078 feet per second is equivalent to 638.69753779753 knots:

1078 feet per second = 638.69753779753 knots

Alternative conversion
