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 180 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 180 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

180 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 180 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 106.64708423335 kt

The final result is:

180 ft/s → 106.64708423335 kt

We conclude that 180 feet per second is equivalent to 106.64708423335 knots:

180 feet per second = 106.64708423335 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0093767214283319 × 180 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 180 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0093767214283319 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred eighty feet per second is approximately one hundred six point six four seven knots:

180 ft/s ≅ 106.647 kt

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