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 689 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 689 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

689 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 689 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 408.22133909323 kt

The final result is:

689 ft/s → 408.22133909323 kt

We conclude that 689 feet per second is equivalent to 408.22133909323 knots:

689 feet per second = 408.22133909323 knots

Alternative conversion
