## 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 496 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 496 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

496 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 496 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 293.87196544302 kt

The final result is:

496 ft/s → 293.87196544302 kt

We conclude that 496 feet per second is equivalent to 293.87196544302 knots:

496 feet per second = 293.87196544302 knots

## Alternative conversion
