Conversion formula

The conversion factor from knots to feet per second is 1.6878098570997, which means that 1 knot is equal to 1.6878098570997 feet per second:

1 kt = 1.6878098570997 ft/s

To convert 430 knots into feet per second we have to multiply 430 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from knots to feet per second. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 kt → 1.6878098570997 ft/s

430 kt → V(ft/s)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in feet per second:

V(ft/s) = 430 kt × 1.6878098570997 ft/s

V(ft/s) = 725.75823855289 ft/s

The final result is:

430 kt → 725.75823855289 ft/s

We conclude that 430 knots is equivalent to 725.75823855289 feet per second:

430 knots = 725.75823855289 feet per second
