Conversion formula

The conversion factor from knots to meters per second is 0.514444444444, which means that 1 knot is equal to 0.514444444444 meters per second:

1 kt = 0.514444444444 m/s

To convert 100 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 100 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from knots to meters per second. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 kt → 0.514444444444 m/s

100 kt → V(m/s)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in meters per second:

V(m/s) = 100 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 51.4444444444 m/s

The final result is:

100 kt → 51.4444444444 m/s

We conclude that 100 knots is equivalent to 51.4444444444 meters per second:

100 knots = 51.4444444444 meters per second

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter per second is equal to 0.019438444924423 × 100 knots.

Another way is saying that 100 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.019438444924423 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred knots is approximately fifty-one point four four four meters per second:

100 kt ≅ 51.444 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero one nine times one hundred knots.
