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 1580 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 1580 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

1580 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 1580 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 812.82222222152 m/s

The final result is:

1580 kt → 812.82222222152 m/s

We conclude that 1580 knots is equivalent to 812.82222222152 meters per second:

1580 knots = 812.82222222152 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 0.0012302813243306 × 1580 knots.

Another way is saying that 1580 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0012302813243306 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 five hundred eighty knots is approximately eight hundred twelve point eight two two meters per second:

1580 kt ≅ 812.822 m/s

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