## How to convert knots to meters per second (kn, kt to m/s)

The formula for converting knots to meters per second is: m/s = kn, kt × 0.5144444444. To calculate the knot (std) value in meters per second first substitute the knot (std) value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 knot (std) in meters per second we follow these steps:

m/s = kn, kt × 0.5144444444

m/s = 1 × 0.5144444444

m/s = 0.5144444444

In other words, 1 knot (std) is equal to 0.5144444444 meters per second.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 2 knots to meters per second is:

- Understand the conversion formula: m/s = kn, kt × 0.5144444444
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 2 for kn, kt so the formula becomes: m/s = 2 × 0.5144444444
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 2 × 0.5144444444 = 1.0288888888 m/s

In summary, 2 knots is equal to 1.0288888888 meters per second.

## Converting meters per second to knots

In order to convert the other way around i.e. meters per second to knots, you would use the following formula: kn, kt = m/s × 1.94384449260854. To convert meters per second to knots first substitute the meter per second value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 meter per second in knots we follow these steps:

kn, kt = m/s × 1.94384449260854

kn, kt = 1 × 1.94384449260854

kn, kt = 1.94384449260854

Or in other words, 1 meter per second is equal to 1.94384449260854 knots.
