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 179 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 179 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

179 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 179 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 106.05460043206 kt

The final result is:

179 ft/s → 106.05460043206 kt

We conclude that 179 feet per second is equivalent to 106.05460043206 knots:

179 feet per second = 106.05460043206 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0094291053469259 × 179 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 179 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0094291053469259 knots.

Approximate result

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

179 ft/s ≅ 106.055 kt

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