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 271 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 271 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

271 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 271 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 160.56311015133 kt

The final result is:

271 ft/s → 160.56311015133 kt

We conclude that 271 feet per second is equivalent to 160.56311015133 knots:

271 feet per second = 160.56311015133 knots

Alternative conversion
