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 73 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 73 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

73 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 73 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 43.251317494638 kt

The final result is:

73 ft/s → 43.251317494638 kt

We conclude that 73 feet per second is equivalent to 43.251317494638 knots:

73 feet per second = 43.251317494638 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.023120682973969 × 73 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 73 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.023120682973969 knots.

Approximate result

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

73 ft/s ≅ 43.251 kt

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