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 258 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 258 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

258 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 258 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 152.86082073447 kt

The final result is:

258 ft/s → 152.86082073447 kt

We conclude that 258 feet per second is equivalent to 152.86082073447 knots:

258 feet per second = 152.86082073447 knots
