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 263 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 263 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

263 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 263 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 155.82323974096 kt

The final result is:

263 ft/s → 155.82323974096 kt

We conclude that 263 feet per second is equivalent to 155.82323974096 knots:

263 feet per second = 155.82323974096 knots
