Conversion Formulas
Feel free to convert knots to meters per second (knots to m/s) and meters per second to knots (m/s to knots) using our conversion chart, and conversion calculator, and learn the relationship between these two units.
Conversion of knots to meters per second (knots to m/s) and meters per second to knots (m/s to knots) is an easy one since both units are used for measuring speed.
And while the meter is a unit of the SI system of units, obviously the nautical mile is not a unit of the SI system of units, but it is still used very often.
Meters and nautical miles are used to measure length, while seconds and hours are used to measure time.
Their relationships are as follows:
1 nautical mile (nm) = 1852 m → 1 meter = 1/1852 nm
1 hour (h) = 3600 seconds → 1 second = 1/3600 hour
Thus, if we want to convert knots to m/s and m/s to knots, we can write:
1 knot = 1852 m / 3600 s = 0.5144 m/s
1 m/s = (1/1852) nautical miles / (1/3600) hour = 3600 nm / 1609.34 h = 1.9438 knots
These last two formulas allow us to easily convert m/s to knots and knots to m/s.
Knots to Meters Per Second (knots to m/s) and Meters Per Second to Knots (m/s to knots) Conversion Examples
How many knots is 4 m/s?
In order to convert the speed given in meters per second to the speed in knots, we can write:
v = 4 m/s = 4 * 1.9438 knots = 7.7753 knots
So, 4 m/s is equal to 7.7753 knots.
How many m/s is 16 knots?
In order to convert the speed given in knots to the speed given in meters per second, we can write
v = 16 knots = 16 * 0.5144 m/s = 8.2311 m/s
So, 16 knots is equal to 8.2311 m/s.
