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 12.9 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 12.9 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

12.9 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 12.9 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 6.6363333333276 m/s

The final result is:

12.9 kt → 6.6363333333276 m/s

We conclude that 12.9 knots is equivalent to 6.6363333333276 meters per second:

12.9 knots = 6.6363333333276 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 0.15068561956917 × 12.9 knots.

Another way is saying that 12.9 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.15068561956917 meters per second.

Approximate result

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

12.9 kt ≅ 6.636 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point one five one times twelve point nine knots.
