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 580 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 580 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

580 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 580 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 343.64060475192 kt

The final result is:

580 ft/s → 343.64060475192 kt

We conclude that 580 feet per second is equivalent to 343.64060475192 knots:

580 feet per second = 343.64060475192 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0029100169949995 × 580 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 580 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0029100169949995 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that five hundred eighty feet per second is approximately three hundred forty-three point six four one knots:

580 ft/s ≅ 343.641 kt

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