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 475 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 475 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

475 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 475 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 281.42980561579 kt

The final result is:

475 ft/s → 281.42980561579 kt

We conclude that 475 feet per second is equivalent to 281.42980561579 knots:

475 feet per second = 281.42980561579 knots

Alternative conversion
