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 17.2 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 17.2 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

17.2 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 17.2 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 10.190721382298 kt

The final result is:

17.2 ft/s → 10.190721382298 kt

We conclude that 17.2 feet per second is equivalent to 10.190721382298 knots:

17.2 feet per second = 10.190721382298 knots

17.2 feet per second is equal to 10.191 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.098128480063938 × 17.2 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 17.2 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.098128480063938 knots.

Approximate result

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

17.2 ft/s ≅ 10.191 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero nine eight times seventeen point two feet per second.
