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 1780 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 1780 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

1780 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 1780 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 1054.6211663076 kt

The final result is:

1780 ft/s → 1054.6211663076 kt

We conclude that 1780 feet per second is equivalent to 1054.6211663076 knots:

1780 feet per second = 1054.6211663076 knots
