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 20.6 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 20.6 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

20.6 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 20.6 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 12.205166306706 kt

The final result is:

20.6 ft/s → 12.205166306706 kt

We conclude that 20.6 feet per second is equivalent to 12.205166306706 knots:

20.6 feet per second = 12.205166306706 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.081932517334939 × 20.6 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 20.6 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.081932517334939 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that twenty point six feet per second is approximately twelve point two zero five knots:

20.6 ft/s ≅ 12.205 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero eight two times twenty point six feet per second.
