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 1138 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 1138 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

1138 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 1138 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 585.43777777727 m/s

The final result is:

1138 kt → 585.43777777727 m/s

We conclude that 1138 knots is equivalent to 585.43777777727 meters per second:

1138 knots = 585.43777777727 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 0.0017081234555732 × 1138 knots.

Another way is saying that 1138 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0017081234555732 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 one hundred thirty-eight knots is approximately five hundred eighty-five point four three eight meters per second:

1138 kt ≅ 585.438 m/s

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