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 16 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 16 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

16 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 16 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 9.4797408207425 kt

The final result is:

16 ft/s → 9.4797408207425 kt

We conclude that 16 feet per second is equivalent to 9.4797408207425 knots:

16 feet per second = 9.4797408207425 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.10548811606873 × 16 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 16 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.10548811606873 knots.

Approximate result

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

16 ft/s ≅ 9.48 kt

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