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 1086 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 1086 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

1086 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 1086 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 643.4374082079 kt

The final result is:

1086 ft/s → 643.4374082079 kt

We conclude that 1086 feet per second is equivalent to 643.4374082079 knots:

1086 feet per second = 643.4374082079 knots

Alternative conversion
