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 159 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 159 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

159 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 159 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 81.796666666596 m/s

The final result is:

159 kt → 81.796666666596 m/s

We conclude that 159 knots is equivalent to 81.796666666596 meters per second:

159 knots = 81.796666666596 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 0.012225437059385 × 159 knots.

Another way is saying that 159 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012225437059385 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-nine knots is approximately eighty-one point seven nine seven meters per second:

159 kt ≅ 81.797 m/s

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