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 78.4 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 78.4 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

78.4 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 78.4 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 46.450730021638 kt

The final result is:

78.4 ft/s → 46.450730021638 kt

We conclude that 78.4 feet per second is equivalent to 46.450730021638 knots:

78.4 feet per second = 46.450730021638 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.021528186952803 × 78.4 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 78.4 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.021528186952803 knots.

Approximate result

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

78.4 ft/s ≅ 46.451 kt

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