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 108 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 108 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

108 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 108 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 55.559999999952 m/s

The final result is:

108 kt → 55.559999999952 m/s

We conclude that 108 knots is equivalent to 55.559999999952 meters per second:

108 knots = 55.559999999952 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 0.017998560115206 × 108 knots.

Another way is saying that 108 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.017998560115206 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 eight knots is approximately fifty-five point five six meters per second:

108 kt ≅ 55.56 m/s

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