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 216 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 216 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

216 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 216 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 127.97650108002 kt

The final result is:

216 ft/s → 127.97650108002 kt

We conclude that 216 feet per second is equivalent to 127.97650108002 knots:

216 feet per second = 127.97650108002 knots

216 feet per second is equal to 127.977 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0078139345236099 × 216 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 216 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0078139345236099 knots.

Approximate result

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

216 ft/s ≅ 127.977 kt

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