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 240 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 240 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

240 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 240 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 142.19611231114 kt

The final result is:

240 ft/s → 142.19611231114 kt

We conclude that 240 feet per second is equivalent to 142.19611231114 knots:

240 feet per second = 142.19611231114 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0070325410712489 × 240 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 240 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0070325410712489 knots.

Approximate result

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

240 ft/s ≅ 142.196 kt

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