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 282 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 282 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

282 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 282 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 167.08043196559 kt

The final result is:

282 ft/s → 167.08043196559 kt

We conclude that 282 feet per second is equivalent to 167.08043196559 knots:

282 feet per second = 167.08043196559 knots

Alternative conversion
