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 442 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 442 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

442 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 442 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 261.87784017301 kt

The final result is:

442 ft/s → 261.87784017301 kt

We conclude that 442 feet per second is equivalent to 261.87784017301 knots:

442 feet per second = 261.87784017301 knots

Alternative conversion
