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 273 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 273 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

273 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 273 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 161.74807775392 kt

The final result is:

273 ft/s → 161.74807775392 kt

We conclude that 273 feet per second is equivalent to 161.74807775392 knots:

273 feet per second = 161.74807775392 knots

Alternative conversion
