## 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 120 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 120 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

120 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 120 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 61.73333333328 m/s

The final result is:

120 kt → 61.73333333328 m/s

We conclude that 120 knots is equivalent to 61.73333333328 meters per second:

120 knots = 61.73333333328 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 0.016198704103686 × 120 knots.

Another way is saying that 120 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.016198704103686 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 twenty knots is approximately sixty-one point seven three three meters per second:

120 kt ≅ 61.733 m/s

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