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 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 78 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 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 78 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 46.21373650112 kt

The final result is:

78 ft/s → 46.21373650112 kt

We conclude that 78 feet per second is equivalent to 46.21373650112 knots:

78 feet per second = 46.21373650112 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.021638587911535 × 78 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 78 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.021638587911535 knots.

Approximate result

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

78 ft/s ≅ 46.214 kt

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