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 473 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 473 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

473 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 473 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 280.2448380132 kt

The final result is:

473 ft/s → 280.2448380132 kt

We conclude that 473 feet per second is equivalent to 280.2448380132 knots:

473 feet per second = 280.2448380132 knots
