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 285 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 285 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

285 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 285 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 168.85788336948 kt

The final result is:

285 ft/s → 168.85788336948 kt

We conclude that 285 feet per second is equivalent to 168.85788336948 knots:

285 feet per second = 168.85788336948 knots
