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 98 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 98 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

98 ft/s → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 98 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 58.063412527048 kt

The final result is:

98 ft/s → 58.063412527048 kt

We conclude that 98 feet per second is equivalent to 58.063412527048 knots:

98 feet per second = 58.063412527048 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.017222549562242 × 98 feet per second.

Another way is saying that 98 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.017222549562242 knots.

Approximate result

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

98 ft/s ≅ 58.063 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero one seven times ninety-eight feet per second.
