## 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 172 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 172 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

172 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 172 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 101.90721382298 kt

The final result is:

172 ft/s → 101.90721382298 kt

We conclude that 172 feet per second is equivalent to 101.90721382298 knots:

172 feet per second = 101.90721382298 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0098128480063938 × 172 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 172 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0098128480063938 knots.

## Approximate result

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

172 ft/s ≅ 101.907 kt

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