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 538 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 538 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

538 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 538 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 318.75628509747 kt

The final result is:

538 ft/s → 318.75628509747 kt

We conclude that 538 feet per second is equivalent to 318.75628509747 knots:

538 feet per second = 318.75628509747 knots
