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 316 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 316 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

316 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 316 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 187.22488120967 kt

The final result is:

316 ft/s → 187.22488120967 kt

We conclude that 316 feet per second is equivalent to 187.22488120967 knots:

316 feet per second = 187.22488120967 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0053411704338599 × 316 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 316 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0053411704338599 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that three hundred sixteen feet per second is approximately one hundred eighty-seven point two two five knots:

316 ft/s ≅ 187.225 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero zero five times three hundred sixteen feet per second.
