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 50.4 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 50.4 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

50.4 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 50.4 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 29.861183585339 kt

The final result is:

50.4 ft/s → 29.861183585339 kt

We conclude that 50.4 feet per second is equivalent to 29.861183585339 knots:

50.4 feet per second = 29.861183585339 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.033488290815471 × 50.4 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 50.4 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.033488290815471 knots.

Approximate result

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

50.4 ft/s ≅ 29.861 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero three three times fifty point four feet per second.
