## 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 29.5 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 29.5 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

29.5 ft/s → V_{(kt)}

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

V_{(kt)} = 29.5 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V_{(kt)} = 17.478272138244 kt

The final result is:

29.5 ft/s → 17.478272138244 kt

We conclude that **29.5 feet per second is equivalent to 17.478272138244 knots**:

29.5 feet per second = 17.478272138244 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 knot is equal to 0.057213893461008 × 29.5 feet per second**.

Another way is saying that *29.5 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.057213893461008 knots*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **twenty-nine point five feet per second is approximately seventeen point four seven eight knots**:

29.5 ft/s ≅ 17.478 kt

An alternative is also that *one knot is approximately zero point zero five seven times twenty-nine point five feet per second*.
