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 46.7 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 46.7 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

46.7 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 46.7 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 27.668993520542 kt

The final result is:

46.7 ft/s → 27.668993520542 kt

We conclude that 46.7 feet per second is equivalent to 27.668993520542 knots:

46.7 feet per second = 27.668993520542 knots

46.7 feet per second is equal to 27.669 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.036141538695926 × 46.7 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 46.7 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.036141538695926 knots.

Approximate result

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

46.7 ft/s ≅ 27.669 kt

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