## 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 8 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 8 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

8 ft/s → V_{(kt)}

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

V_{(kt)} = 8 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V_{(kt)} = 4.7398704103713 kt

The final result is:

8 ft/s → 4.7398704103713 kt

We conclude that **8 feet per second is equivalent to 4.7398704103713 knots**:

8 feet per second = 4.7398704103713 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 knot is equal to 0.21097623213747 × 8 feet per second**.

Another way is saying that *8 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.21097623213747 knots*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **eight feet per second is approximately four point seven four knots**:

8 ft/s ≅ 4.74 kt

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