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 37.8 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 37.8 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

37.8 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 37.8 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 22.395887689004 kt

The final result is:

37.8 ft/s → 22.395887689004 kt

We conclude that 37.8 feet per second is equivalent to 22.395887689004 knots:

37.8 feet per second = 22.395887689004 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.044651054420628 × 37.8 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 37.8 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.044651054420628 knots.

Approximate result

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

37.8 ft/s ≅ 22.396 kt

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