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 130 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 130 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

130 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 130 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 77.022894168533 kt

The final result is:

130 ft/s → 77.022894168533 kt

We conclude that 130 feet per second is equivalent to 77.022894168533 knots:

130 feet per second = 77.022894168533 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.012983152746921 × 130 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 130 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012983152746921 knots.

Approximate result

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

130 ft/s ≅ 77.023 kt

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