Converting from units of feet per second to knots? Make your life easier by using our accurate and simply speed converter with many more available here.

**Feet per second** and **knots** are both used in specific industries, whether that be science or maritime as they are suitable for the speed of certain objects. They may not be as familiar as mph or km/h because we do not use them or see them being used on a regular basis. Use our **feet per second to knots converter** above, or try out the other speed converters we have.

## How to use the Converter for Feet per second to Knots?

Simple enter in the box above a quantity of feet per second and click “convert” to begin the **ft/s – kn conversion** and see the new quantity in knots appear. To convert the other way, **convert knots to feet per second**.

## Formula to Convert ft/s – kn

Our **feet per second – knots conversion tool** uses an accurate formula to convert one unit of speed to another, and for these two units the speed equation is shown below. For example, 26 ft/s = 15.4 kn and 52 ft/s = 30.8 kn

**[number of] feet per second / 1.68781 = [number of] knots**

## When to use ft/s?

Although it is not considered as a common or mainstream measurement, **feet per** **second**, is another unit used to calculate speed. Feet per second is often found to be used when you need to convert measurements into mph or km/h, such as in chemistry and physics. It is used to calculate speeds of slower moving objects. Try out our **feet/s to knots converter**.

## When to use knots?

The unit of speed known as **knots** is an important measurement used in meteorology but also in the air navigation and maritime industries. Its main purpose is to calculate the speed of vessels relative to the fluids in which they travel, whether that is water or air. A knot is equivalent to one nautical mile exactly.
