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 153 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 153 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

153 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 153 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 78.709999999932 m/s

The final result is:

153 kt → 78.709999999932 m/s

We conclude that 153 knots is equivalent to 78.709999999932 meters per second:

153 knots = 78.709999999932 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 0.012704865963675 × 153 knots.

Another way is saying that 153 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012704865963675 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-three knots is approximately seventy-eight point seven one meters per second:

153 kt ≅ 78.71 m/s

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