## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from knots to feet per second is 1.6878098570997, which means that 1 knot is equal to 1.6878098570997 feet per second:

1 kt = 1.6878098570997 ft/s

To convert 3 knots into feet per second we have to multiply 3 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from knots to feet per second. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 kt → 1.6878098570997 ft/s

3 kt → V_{(ft/s)}

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity *V* in feet per second:

V_{(ft/s)} = 3 kt × 1.6878098570997 ft/s

V_{(ft/s)} = 5.0634295712992 ft/s

The final result is:

3 kt → 5.0634295712992 ft/s

We conclude that **3 knots is equivalent to 5.0634295712992 feet per second**:

3 knots = 5.0634295712992 feet per second

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 foot per second is equal to 0.19749460043214 × 3 knots**.

Another way is saying that *3 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.19749460043214 feet per second*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **three knots is approximately five point zero six three feet per second**:

3 kt ≅ 5.063 ft/s

An alternative is also that *one foot per second is approximately zero point one nine seven times three knots*.
