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 13.7 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 13.7 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

13.7 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 13.7 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 8.1170280777608 kt

The final result is:

13.7 ft/s → 8.1170280777608 kt

We conclude that 13.7 feet per second is equivalent to 8.1170280777608 knots:

13.7 feet per second = 8.1170280777608 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.1231977997883 × 13.7 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 13.7 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.1231977997883 knots.

Approximate result

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

13.7 ft/s ≅ 8.117 kt

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