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 447 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 447 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

447 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 447 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 264.84025917949 kt

The final result is:

447 ft/s → 264.84025917949 kt

We conclude that 447 feet per second is equivalent to 264.84025917949 knots:

447 feet per second = 264.84025917949 knots

447 feet per second is equal to 264.84 knots

Alternative conversion
