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 83.3 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 83.3 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

83.3 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 83.3 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 49.353900647991 kt

The final result is:

83.3 ft/s → 49.353900647991 kt

We conclude that 83.3 feet per second is equivalent to 49.353900647991 knots:

83.3 feet per second = 49.353900647991 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.020261823014403 × 83.3 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 83.3 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.020261823014403 knots.

Approximate result

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

83.3 ft/s ≅ 49.354 kt

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