## 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 130 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 130 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

130 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 130 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 66.87777777772 m/s

The final result is:

130 kt → 66.87777777772 m/s

We conclude that 130 knots is equivalent to 66.87777777772 meters per second:

130 knots = 66.87777777772 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 0.014952649941864 × 130 knots.

Another way is saying that 130 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.014952649941864 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 thirty knots is approximately sixty-six point eight seven eight meters per second:

130 kt ≅ 66.878 m/s

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