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 38.9 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 38.9 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

38.9 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 38.9 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 23.04761987043 kt

The final result is:

38.9 ft/s → 23.04761987043 kt

We conclude that 38.9 feet per second is equivalent to 23.04761987043 knots:

38.9 feet per second = 23.04761987043 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.043388428203078 × 38.9 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 38.9 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.043388428203078 knots.

Approximate result

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

38.9 ft/s ≅ 23.048 kt

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