Conversion formula

The conversion factor from feet per second to kilometers per hour is 1.0972799999991, which means that 1 foot per second is equal to 1.0972799999991 kilometers per hour:

1 ft/s = 1.0972799999991 km/h

To convert 17.1 feet per second into kilometers per hour we have to multiply 17.1 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from feet per second to kilometers per hour. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 ft/s → 1.0972799999991 km/h

17.1 ft/s → V(km/h)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in kilometers per hour:

V(km/h) = 17.1 ft/s × 1.0972799999991 km/h

V(km/h) = 18.763487999985 km/h

The final result is:

17.1 ft/s → 18.763487999985 km/h

We conclude that 17.1 feet per second is equivalent to 18.763487999985 kilometers per hour:

17.1 feet per second = 18.763487999985 kilometers per hour
