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 587 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 587 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

587 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 587 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 347.78799136099 kt

The final result is:

587 ft/s → 347.78799136099 kt

We conclude that 587 feet per second is equivalent to 347.78799136099 knots:

587 feet per second = 347.78799136099 knots
