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 47.8 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 47.8 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

47.8 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 47.8 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 28.320725701968 kt

The final result is:

47.8 ft/s → 28.320725701968 kt

We conclude that 47.8 feet per second is equivalent to 28.320725701968 knots:

47.8 feet per second = 28.320725701968 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.035309829646438 × 47.8 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 47.8 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.035309829646438 knots.

Approximate result

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

47.8 ft/s ≅ 28.321 kt

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