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 246.5 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 246.5 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

246.5 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 246.5 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 146.04725701956 kt

The final result is:

246.5 ft/s → 146.04725701956 kt

We conclude that 246.5 feet per second is equivalent to 146.04725701956 knots:

246.5 feet per second = 146.04725701956 knots
