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 388 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 388 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

388 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 388 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 229.88371490301 kt

The final result is:

388 ft/s → 229.88371490301 kt

We conclude that 388 feet per second is equivalent to 229.88371490301 knots:

388 feet per second = 229.88371490301 knots

Alternative conversion
