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 117 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 117 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

117 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 117 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 69.32060475168 kt

The final result is:

117 ft/s → 69.32060475168 kt

We conclude that 117 feet per second is equivalent to 69.32060475168 knots:

117 feet per second = 69.32060475168 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.014425725274357 × 117 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 117 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.014425725274357 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred seventeen feet per second is approximately sixty-nine point three two one knots:

117 ft/s ≅ 69.321 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero one four times one hundred seventeen feet per second.
