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 77.5 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 77.5 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

77.5 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 77.5 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 45.917494600472 kt

The final result is:

77.5 ft/s → 45.917494600472 kt

We conclude that 77.5 feet per second is equivalent to 45.917494600472 knots:

77.5 feet per second = 45.917494600472 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.021778191704513 × 77.5 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 77.5 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.021778191704513 knots.

Approximate result

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

77.5 ft/s ≅ 45.917 kt

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