## 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 165 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 165 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

165 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 165 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 84.88333333326 m/s

The final result is:

165 kt → 84.88333333326 m/s

We conclude that 165 knots is equivalent to 84.88333333326 meters per second:

165 knots = 84.88333333326 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 0.011780875711771 × 165 knots.

Another way is saying that 165 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.011780875711771 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-five knots is approximately eighty-four point eight eight three meters per second:

165 kt ≅ 84.883 m/s

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