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 1006 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 1006 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

1006 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 1006 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 517.53111111066 m/s

The final result is:

1006 kt → 517.53111111066 m/s

We conclude that 1006 knots is equivalent to 517.53111111066 meters per second:

1006 knots = 517.53111111066 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 0.0019322509865231 × 1006 knots.

Another way is saying that 1006 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0019322509865231 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one thousand six knots is approximately five hundred seventeen point five three one meters per second:

1006 kt ≅ 517.531 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero two times one thousand six knots.
