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 198 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 198 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

198 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 198 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 117.31179265669 kt

The final result is:

198 ft/s → 117.31179265669 kt

We conclude that 198 feet per second is equivalent to 117.31179265669 knots:

198 feet per second = 117.31179265669 knots
