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 14.9 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 14.9 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

14.9 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 14.9 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 8.8280086393165 kt

The final result is:

14.9 ft/s → 8.8280086393165 kt

We conclude that 14.9 feet per second is equivalent to 8.8280086393165 knots:

14.9 feet per second = 8.8280086393165 knots

14.9 feet per second is equal to 8.828 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.11327582933555 × 14.9 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 14.9 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.11327582933555 knots.

Approximate result

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

14.9 ft/s ≅ 8.828 kt

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