Conversion formula

The conversion factor from knots to feet per second is 1.6878098570997, which means that 1 knot is equal to 1.6878098570997 feet per second:

1 kt = 1.6878098570997 ft/s

To convert 254 knots into feet per second we have to multiply 254 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from knots to feet per second. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 kt → 1.6878098570997 ft/s

254 kt → V(ft/s)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in feet per second:

V(ft/s) = 254 kt × 1.6878098570997 ft/s

V(ft/s) = 428.70370370333 ft/s

The final result is:

254 kt → 428.70370370333 ft/s

We conclude that 254 knots is equivalent to 428.70370370333 feet per second:

254 knots = 428.70370370333 feet per second
