## How to convert knots to yards per second (kn, kt to yd/s)

The formula for converting knots to yards per second is: yd/s = kn, kt × 0.5626032857. To calculate the knot (std) value in yards 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 yards per second we follow these steps:

yd/s = kn, kt × 0.5626032857

yd/s = 1 × 0.5626032857

yd/s = 0.5626032857

In other words, 1 knot (std) is equal to 0.5626032857 yards per second.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 3 knots to yards per second is:

- Understand the conversion formula: yd/s = kn, kt × 0.5626032857
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 3 for kn, kt so the formula becomes: yd/s = 3 × 0.5626032857
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 3 × 0.5626032857 = 1.6878098571 yd/s

In summary, 3 knots is equal to 1.6878098571 yards per second.

## Converting yards per second to knots

In order to convert the other way around i.e. yards per second to knots, you would use the following formula: kn, kt = yd/s × 1.77745140388895. To convert yards per second to knots first substitute the yard per second value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 yard per second in knots we follow these steps:

kn, kt = yd/s × 1.77745140388895

kn, kt = 1 × 1.77745140388895

kn, kt = 1.77745140388895

Or in other words, 1 yard per second is equal to 1.77745140388895 knots.
