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 1388 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 1388 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

1388 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 1388 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 714.04888888827 m/s

The final result is:

1388 kt → 714.04888888827 m/s

We conclude that 1388 knots is equivalent to 714.04888888827 meters per second:

1388 knots = 714.04888888827 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 0.0014004643317308 × 1388 knots.

Another way is saying that 1388 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0014004643317308 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one thousand three hundred eighty-eight knots is approximately seven hundred fourteen point zero four nine meters per second:

1388 kt ≅ 714.049 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero one times one thousand three hundred eighty-eight knots.
