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 40.5 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 40.5 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

40.5 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 40.5 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 23.995593952505 kt

The final result is:

40.5 ft/s → 23.995593952505 kt

We conclude that 40.5 feet per second is equivalent to 23.995593952505 knots:

40.5 feet per second = 23.995593952505 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.041674317459253 × 40.5 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 40.5 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.041674317459253 knots.

Approximate result

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

40.5 ft/s ≅ 23.996 kt

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