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 55 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 55 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

55 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 55 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 32.586609071302 kt

The final result is:

55 ft/s → 32.586609071302 kt

We conclude that 55 feet per second is equivalent to 32.586609071302 knots:

55 feet per second = 32.586609071302 knots

55 feet per second is equal to 32.587 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.030687451947268 × 55 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 55 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.030687451947268 knots.

Approximate result

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

55 ft/s ≅ 32.587 kt

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