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 7.3 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 7.3 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

7.3 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 7.3 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 4.3251317494638 kt

The final result is:

7.3 ft/s → 4.3251317494638 kt

We conclude that 7.3 feet per second is equivalent to 4.3251317494638 knots:

7.3 feet per second = 4.3251317494638 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.23120682973969 × 7.3 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 7.3 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.23120682973969 knots.

Approximate result

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

7.3 ft/s ≅ 4.325 kt

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