## 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 850 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 850 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

850 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 850 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 503.61123110195 kt

The final result is:

850 ft/s → 503.61123110195 kt

We conclude that 850 feet per second is equivalent to 503.61123110195 knots:

850 feet per second = 503.61123110195 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0019856586554115 × 850 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 850 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0019856586554115 knots.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that eight hundred fifty feet per second is approximately five hundred three point six one one knots:

850 ft/s ≅ 503.611 kt

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