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 24.5 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 24.5 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

24.5 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 24.5 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 14.515853131762 kt

The final result is:

24.5 ft/s → 14.515853131762 kt

We conclude that 24.5 feet per second is equivalent to 14.515853131762 knots:

24.5 feet per second = 14.515853131762 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.068890198248969 × 24.5 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 24.5 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.068890198248969 knots.

Approximate result

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

24.5 ft/s ≅ 14.516 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero six nine times twenty-four point five feet per second.
