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 120 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 120 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

120 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 120 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 71.098056155569 kt

The final result is:

120 ft/s → 71.098056155569 kt

We conclude that 120 feet per second is equivalent to 71.098056155569 knots:

120 feet per second = 71.098056155569 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.014065082142498 × 120 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 120 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.014065082142498 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred twenty feet per second is approximately seventy-one point zero nine eight knots:

120 ft/s ≅ 71.098 kt

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