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 35.8 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 35.8 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

35.8 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 35.8 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 21.210920086411 kt

The final result is:

35.8 ft/s → 21.210920086411 kt

We conclude that 35.8 feet per second is equivalent to 21.210920086411 knots:

35.8 feet per second = 21.210920086411 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.04714552673463 × 35.8 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 35.8 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.04714552673463 knots.

Approximate result

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

35.8 ft/s ≅ 21.211 kt

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