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 479 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 479 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

479 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 479 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 283.79974082098 kt

The final result is:

479 ft/s → 283.79974082098 kt

We conclude that 479 feet per second is equivalent to 283.79974082098 knots:

479 feet per second = 283.79974082098 knots

Alternative conversion
