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 872 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 872 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

872 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 872 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 516.64587473047 kt

The final result is:

872 ft/s → 516.64587473047 kt

We conclude that 872 feet per second is equivalent to 516.64587473047 knots:
