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 34.4 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 34.4 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

34.4 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 34.4 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 20.381442764596 kt

The final result is:

34.4 ft/s → 20.381442764596 kt

We conclude that 34.4 feet per second is equivalent to 20.381442764596 knots:

34.4 feet per second = 20.381442764596 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.049064240031969 × 34.4 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 34.4 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.049064240031969 knots.

Approximate result

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

34.4 ft/s ≅ 20.381 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero four nine times thirty-four point four feet per second.
