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 239 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 239 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

239 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 239 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 141.60362850984 kt

The final result is:

239 ft/s → 141.60362850984 kt

We conclude that 239 feet per second is equivalent to 141.60362850984 knots:

239 feet per second = 141.60362850984 knots

Alternative conversion
