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 287 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 287 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

287 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 287 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 170.04285097207 kt

The final result is:

287 ft/s → 170.04285097207 kt

We conclude that 287 feet per second is equivalent to 170.04285097207 knots:

287 feet per second = 170.04285097207 knots

Alternative conversion
