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 23.9 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 23.9 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

23.9 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 23.9 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 14.160362850984 kt

The final result is:

23.9 ft/s → 14.160362850984 kt

We conclude that 23.9 feet per second is equivalent to 14.160362850984 knots:

23.9 feet per second = 14.160362850984 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.070619659292876 × 23.9 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 23.9 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.070619659292876 knots.

Approximate result

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

23.9 ft/s ≅ 14.16 kt

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