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 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 36 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 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 36 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 21.329416846671 kt

The final result is:

36 ft/s → 21.329416846671 kt

We conclude that 36 feet per second is equivalent to 21.329416846671 knots:

36 feet per second = 21.329416846671 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.046883607141659 × 36 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 36 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.046883607141659 knots.

Approximate result

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

36 ft/s ≅ 21.329 kt

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