## 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 389.6 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 389.6 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

389.6 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 389.6 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 230.83168898508 kt

The final result is:

389.6 ft/s → 230.83168898508 kt

We conclude that 389.6 feet per second is equivalent to 230.83168898508 knots:

389.6 feet per second = 230.83168898508 knots
