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 29.9 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 29.9 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

29.9 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 29.9 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 17.715265658763 kt

The final result is:

29.9 ft/s → 17.715265658763 kt

We conclude that 29.9 feet per second is equivalent to 17.715265658763 knots:

29.9 feet per second = 17.715265658763 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.056448490204005 × 29.9 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 29.9 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.056448490204005 knots.

Approximate result

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

29.9 ft/s ≅ 17.715 kt

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