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 14.7 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 14.7 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

14.7 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 14.7 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 8.7095118790572 kt

The final result is:

14.7 ft/s → 8.7095118790572 kt

We conclude that 14.7 feet per second is equivalent to 8.7095118790572 knots:

14.7 feet per second = 8.7095118790572 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.11481699708161 × 14.7 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 14.7 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.11481699708161 knots.

Approximate result

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

14.7 ft/s ≅ 8.71 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point one one five times fourteen point seven feet per second.
