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 457 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 457 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

457 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 457 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 270.76509719246 kt

The final result is:

457 ft/s → 270.76509719246 kt

We conclude that 457 feet per second is equivalent to 270.76509719246 knots:
