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 1872 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 1872 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

1872 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 1872 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 1109.1296760269 kt

The final result is:

1872 ft/s → 1109.1296760269 kt

We conclude that 1872 feet per second is equivalent to 1109.1296760269 knots:

1872 feet per second = 1109.1296760269 knots
