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 60 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 60 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

60 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 60 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 35.549028077784 kt

The final result is:

60 ft/s → 35.549028077784 kt

We conclude that 60 feet per second is equivalent to 35.549028077784 knots:

60 feet per second = 35.549028077784 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.028130164284996 × 60 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 60 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.028130164284996 knots.

Approximate result

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

60 ft/s ≅ 35.549 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero two eight times sixty feet per second.
