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 131 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 131 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

131 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 131 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 77.615377969829 kt

The final result is:

131 ft/s → 77.615377969829 kt

We conclude that 131 feet per second is equivalent to 77.615377969829 knots:

131 feet per second = 77.615377969829 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.012884044710685 × 131 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 131 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012884044710685 knots.

Approximate result

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

131 ft/s ≅ 77.615 kt

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