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 518 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 518 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

518 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 518 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 306.90660907154 kt

The final result is:

518 ft/s → 306.90660907154 kt

We conclude that 518 feet per second is equivalent to 306.90660907154 knots:

518 feet per second = 306.90660907154 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0032583201874512 × 518 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 518 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0032583201874512 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that five hundred eighteen feet per second is approximately three hundred six point nine zero seven knots:

518 ft/s ≅ 306.907 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero zero three times five hundred eighteen feet per second.
