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 249 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 249 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

249 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 249 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 147.52846652281 kt

The final result is:

249 ft/s → 147.52846652281 kt

We conclude that 249 feet per second is equivalent to 147.52846652281 knots:

249 feet per second = 147.52846652281 knots

Alternative conversion
