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 19.8 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 19.8 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

19.8 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 19.8 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 11.731179265669 kt

The final result is:

19.8 ft/s → 11.731179265669 kt

We conclude that 19.8 feet per second is equivalent to 11.731179265669 knots:

19.8 feet per second = 11.731179265669 knots

19.8 feet per second is equal to 11.731 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.085242922075744 × 19.8 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 19.8 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.085242922075744 knots.

Approximate result

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

19.8 ft/s ≅ 11.731 kt

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