## 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 242 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 242 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

242 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 242 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 143.38107991373 kt

The final result is:

242 ft/s → 143.38107991373 kt

We conclude that 242 feet per second is equivalent to 143.38107991373 knots:

242 feet per second = 143.38107991373 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0069744208971064 × 242 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 242 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0069744208971064 knots.

## Approximate result

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

242 ft/s ≅ 143.381 kt

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