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 842 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 842 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

842 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 842 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 498.87136069158 kt

The final result is:

842 ft/s → 498.87136069158 kt

We conclude that 842 feet per second is equivalent to 498.87136069158 knots:

842 feet per second = 498.87136069158 knots

Alternative conversion
