## 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 142 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 142 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

142 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 142 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 84.13269978409 kt

The final result is:

142 ft/s → 84.13269978409 kt

We conclude that 142 feet per second is equivalent to 84.13269978409 knots:

142 feet per second = 84.13269978409 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.011885984909153 × 142 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 142 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.011885984909153 knots.

## Approximate result

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

142 ft/s ≅ 84.133 kt

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