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 1637 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 1637 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

1637 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 1637 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 842.14555555483 m/s

The final result is:

1637 kt → 842.14555555483 m/s

We conclude that 1637 knots is equivalent to 842.14555555483 meters per second:

1637 knots = 842.14555555483 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 0.0011874431841431 × 1637 knots.

Another way is saying that 1637 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0011874431841431 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 six hundred thirty-seven knots is approximately eight hundred forty-two point one four six meters per second:

1637 kt ≅ 842.146 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero one times one thousand six hundred thirty-seven knots.
