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 23.8 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 23.8 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

23.8 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 23.8 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 14.101114470855 kt

The final result is:

23.8 ft/s → 14.101114470855 kt

We conclude that 23.8 feet per second is equivalent to 14.101114470855 knots:

23.8 feet per second = 14.101114470855 knots

23.8 feet per second is equal to 14.101 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.070916380550409 × 23.8 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 23.8 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.070916380550409 knots.

Approximate result

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

23.8 ft/s ≅ 14.101 kt

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