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 42.3 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 42.3 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

42.3 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 42.3 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 25.062064794838 kt

The final result is:

42.3 ft/s → 25.062064794838 kt

We conclude that 42.3 feet per second is equivalent to 25.062064794838 knots:

42.3 feet per second = 25.062064794838 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.039900942248221 × 42.3 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 42.3 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.039900942248221 knots.

Approximate result

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

42.3 ft/s ≅ 25.062 kt

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