Conversion formula

The conversion factor from knots to feet per second is 1.6878098570997, which means that 1 knot is equal to 1.6878098570997 feet per second:

1 kt = 1.6878098570997 ft/s

To convert 149 knots into feet per second we have to multiply 149 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from knots to feet per second. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 kt → 1.6878098570997 ft/s

149 kt → V(ft/s)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in feet per second:

V(ft/s) = 149 kt × 1.6878098570997 ft/s

V(ft/s) = 251.48366870786 ft/s

The final result is:

149 kt → 251.48366870786 ft/s

We conclude that 149 knots is equivalent to 251.48366870786 feet per second:

149 knots = 251.48366870786 feet per second
