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 231 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 231 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

231 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 231 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 136.86375809947 kt

The final result is:

231 ft/s → 136.86375809947 kt

We conclude that 231 feet per second is equivalent to 136.86375809947 knots:

231 feet per second = 136.86375809947 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0073065361779209 × 231 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 231 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0073065361779209 knots.

Approximate result

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

231 ft/s ≅ 136.864 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero zero seven times two hundred thirty-one feet per second.
