## 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 79 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 79 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

79 ft/s → V_{(kt)}

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

V_{(kt)} = 79 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V_{(kt)} = 46.806220302416 kt

The final result is:

79 ft/s → 46.806220302416 kt

We conclude that **79 feet per second is equivalent to 46.806220302416 knots**:

79 feet per second = 46.806220302416 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 knot is equal to 0.02136468173544 × 79 feet per second**.

Another way is saying that *79 feet per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.02136468173544 knots*.

## Approximate result

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

79 ft/s ≅ 46.806 kt

An alternative is also that *one knot is approximately zero point zero two one times seventy-nine feet per second*.
