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 48 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 48 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

48 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 48 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 28.439222462228 kt

The final result is:

48 ft/s → 28.439222462228 kt

We conclude that 48 feet per second is equivalent to 28.439222462228 knots:

48 feet per second = 28.439222462228 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.035162705356245 × 48 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 48 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.035162705356245 knots.

Approximate result

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

48 ft/s ≅ 28.439 kt

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