## 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 160 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 160 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

160 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 160 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 82.31111111104 m/s

The final result is:

160 kt → 82.31111111104 m/s

We conclude that 160 knots is equivalent to 82.31111111104 meters per second:

160 knots = 82.31111111104 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 0.012149028077764 × 160 knots.

Another way is saying that 160 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012149028077764 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 sixty knots is approximately eighty-two point three one one meters per second:

160 kt ≅ 82.311 m/s

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