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 138 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 138 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

138 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 138 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 81.762764578904 kt

The final result is:

138 ft/s → 81.762764578904 kt

We conclude that 138 feet per second is equivalent to 81.762764578904 knots:

138 feet per second = 81.762764578904 knots
