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 71.1 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 71.1 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

71.1 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 71.1 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 42.125598272175 kt

The final result is:

71.1 ft/s → 42.125598272175 kt

We conclude that 71.1 feet per second is equivalent to 42.125598272175 knots:

71.1 feet per second = 42.125598272175 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0237385352616 × 71.1 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 71.1 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0237385352616 knots.

Approximate result

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

71.1 ft/s ≅ 42.126 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero two four times seventy-one point one feet per second.
