## 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 138 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 138 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

138 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 138 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 70.993333333272 m/s

The final result is:

138 kt → 70.993333333272 m/s

We conclude that 138 knots is equivalent to 70.993333333272 meters per second:

138 knots = 70.993333333272 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 0.014085829655379 × 138 knots.

Another way is saying that 138 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.014085829655379 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-eight knots is approximately seventy point nine nine three meters per second:

138 kt ≅ 70.993 m/s

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