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 45.9 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 45.9 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

45.9 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 45.9 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 27.195006479505 kt

The final result is:

45.9 ft/s → 27.195006479505 kt

We conclude that 45.9 feet per second is equivalent to 27.195006479505 knots:

45.9 feet per second = 27.195006479505 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.036771456581694 × 45.9 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 45.9 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.036771456581694 knots.

Approximate result

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

45.9 ft/s ≅ 27.195 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero three seven times forty-five point nine feet per second.
