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 12.8 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 12.8 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

12.8 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 12.8 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 7.583792656594 kt

The final result is:

12.8 ft/s → 7.583792656594 kt

We conclude that 12.8 feet per second is equivalent to 7.583792656594 knots:

12.8 feet per second = 7.583792656594 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.13186014508592 × 12.8 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 12.8 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.13186014508592 knots.

Approximate result

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

12.8 ft/s ≅ 7.584 kt

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