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 82.4 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 82.4 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

82.4 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 82.4 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 48.820665226824 kt

The final result is:

82.4 ft/s → 48.820665226824 kt

We conclude that 82.4 feet per second is equivalent to 48.820665226824 knots:

82.4 feet per second = 48.820665226824 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.020483129333735 × 82.4 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 82.4 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.020483129333735 knots.

Approximate result

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

82.4 ft/s ≅ 48.821 kt

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