# How fast is 117 knots in meters per second?

## Unit Converter

## 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 117 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 117 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

117 kt → V_{(m/s)}

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

V_{(m/s)} = 117 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V_{(m/s)} = 60.189999999948 m/s

The final result is:

117 kt → 60.189999999948 m/s

We conclude that **117 knots is equivalent to 60.189999999948 meters per second**:

117 knots = 60.189999999948 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 0.01661405549096 × 117 knots**.

Another way is saying that *117 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.01661405549096 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 seventeen knots is approximately sixty point one nine meters per second**:

117 kt ≅ 60.19 m/s

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