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 4.8 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 4.8 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

4.8 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 4.8 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 2.8439222462228 kt

The final result is:

4.8 ft/s → 2.8439222462228 kt

We conclude that 4.8 feet per second is equivalent to 2.8439222462228 knots:

4.8 feet per second = 2.8439222462228 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.35162705356245 × 4.8 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 4.8 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.35162705356245 knots.

Approximate result

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

4.8 ft/s ≅ 2.844 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point three five two times four point eight feet per second.
