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 23.5 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 23.5 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

23.5 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 23.5 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 13.923369330466 kt

The final result is:

23.5 ft/s → 13.923369330466 kt

We conclude that 23.5 feet per second is equivalent to 13.923369330466 knots:

23.5 feet per second = 13.923369330466 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.071821696046797 × 23.5 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 23.5 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.071821696046797 knots.

Approximate result

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

23.5 ft/s ≅ 13.923 kt

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