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 53 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 53 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

53 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 53 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 31.40164146871 kt

The final result is:

53 ft/s → 31.40164146871 kt

We conclude that 53 feet per second is equivalent to 31.40164146871 knots:

53 feet per second = 31.40164146871 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.031845469001882 × 53 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 53 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.031845469001882 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that fifty-three feet per second is approximately thirty-one point four zero two knots:

53 ft/s ≅ 31.402 kt

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