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 144 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 144 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

144 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 144 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 74.079999999936 m/s

The final result is:

144 kt → 74.079999999936 m/s

We conclude that 144 knots is equivalent to 74.079999999936 meters per second:

144 knots = 74.079999999936 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 0.013498920086405 × 144 knots.

Another way is saying that 144 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.013498920086405 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 forty-four knots is approximately seventy-four point zero eight meters per second:

144 kt ≅ 74.08 m/s

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