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 23.1 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 23.1 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

23.1 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 23.1 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 13.686375809947 kt

The final result is:

23.1 ft/s → 13.686375809947 kt

We conclude that 23.1 feet per second is equivalent to 13.686375809947 knots:

23.1 feet per second = 13.686375809947 knots

23.1 feet per second is equal to 13.686 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.073065361779209 × 23.1 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 23.1 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.073065361779209 knots.

Approximate result

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

23.1 ft/s ≅ 13.686 kt

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