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 150 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 150 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

150 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 150 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 77.1666666666 m/s

The final result is:

150 kt → 77.1666666666 m/s

We conclude that 150 knots is equivalent to 77.1666666666 meters per second:

150 knots = 77.1666666666 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 0.012958963282949 × 150 knots.

Another way is saying that 150 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012958963282949 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 fifty knots is approximately seventy-seven point one six seven meters per second:

150 kt ≅ 77.167 m/s

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