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.

 

knots to ms 1

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 / 1852 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.
