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 18.8 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 18.8 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

18.8 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 18.8 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 11.138695464372 kt

The final result is:

18.8 ft/s → 11.138695464372 kt

We conclude that 18.8 feet per second is equivalent to 11.138695464372 knots:

18.8 feet per second = 11.138695464372 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.089777120058497 × 18.8 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 18.8 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.089777120058497 knots.

Approximate result

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

18.8 ft/s ≅ 11.139 kt

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