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 800 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 800 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

800 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 800 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 473.98704103713 kt

The final result is:

800 ft/s → 473.98704103713 kt

We conclude that 800 feet per second is equivalent to 473.98704103713 knots:

800 feet per second = 473.98704103713 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0021097623213747 × 800 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 800 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0021097623213747 knots.

Approximate result

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

800 ft/s ≅ 473.987 kt

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