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 717 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 717 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

717 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 717 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 424.81088552952 kt

The final result is:

717 ft/s → 424.81088552952 kt

We conclude that 717 feet per second is equivalent to 424.81088552952 knots:

717 feet per second = 424.81088552952 knots

717 feet per second is equal to 424.811 knots

Alternative conversion
