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 36.5 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 36.5 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

36.5 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 36.5 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 21.625658747319 kt

The final result is:

36.5 ft/s → 21.625658747319 kt

We conclude that 36.5 feet per second is equivalent to 21.625658747319 knots:

36.5 feet per second = 21.625658747319 knots

36.5 feet per second is equal to 21.626 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.046241365947938 × 36.5 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 36.5 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.046241365947938 knots.

Approximate result

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

36.5 ft/s ≅ 21.626 kt

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