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 30.7 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 30.7 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

30.7 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 30.7 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 18.1892526998 kt

The final result is:

30.7 ft/s → 18.1892526998 kt

We conclude that 30.7 feet per second is equivalent to 18.1892526998 knots:

30.7 feet per second = 18.1892526998 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.054977519775236 × 30.7 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 30.7 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.054977519775236 knots.

Approximate result

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

30.7 ft/s ≅ 18.189 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero five five times thirty point seven feet per second.
