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 11.4 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 11.4 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

11.4 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 11.4 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 5.8646666666616 m/s

The final result is:

11.4 kt → 5.8646666666616 m/s

We conclude that 11.4 knots is equivalent to 5.8646666666616 meters per second:

11.4 knots = 5.8646666666616 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 0.17051267477564 × 11.4 knots.

Another way is saying that 11.4 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.17051267477564 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that eleven point four knots is approximately five point eight six five meters per second:

11.4 kt ≅ 5.865 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point one seven one times eleven point four knots.
