FAQ about Knot to Meter/Second Conversion

1 knot (kn) is equal to 0.51444 meter/second (m/s).

1kn = 0.51444m/s

The speed v in meter/second (m/s) is equal to the speed v in knot (kn) times 0.51444, that conversion formula:

v(m/s) = v(kn) × 0.51444

One Knot is equal to 0.51444 Meter/Second:

1kn = 1kn × 0.51444 = 0.51444m/s

One Meter/Second is equal to 1.94384 Knot:

1m/s = 1m/s × 1.94384 = 1.94384kn

v(m/s) = 5(kn) × 0.51444 = 2.5722m/s
