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 21 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 21 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

21 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 21 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 12.442159827225 kt

The final result is:

21 ft/s → 12.442159827225 kt

We conclude that 21 feet per second is equivalent to 12.442159827225 knots:

21 feet per second = 12.442159827225 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.08037189795713 × 21 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 21 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.08037189795713 knots.

Approximate result

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

21 ft/s ≅ 12.442 kt

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