## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from meters per second to knots is 1.9438444924423, which means that 1 meter per second is equal to 1.9438444924423 knots:

1 m/s = 1.9438444924423 kt

To convert 170 meters per second into knots we have to multiply 170 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from meters per second to knots. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 m/s → 1.9438444924423 kt

170 m/s → V_{(kt)}

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity *V* in knots:

V_{(kt)} = 170 m/s × 1.9438444924423 kt

V_{(kt)} = 330.45356371519 kt

The final result is:

170 m/s → 330.45356371519 kt

We conclude that **170 meters per second is equivalent to 330.45356371519 knots**:

170 meters per second = 330.45356371519 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 knot is equal to 0.0030261437908471 × 170 meters per second**.

Another way is saying that *170 meters per second is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0030261437908471 knots*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **one hundred seventy meters per second is approximately three hundred thirty point four five four knots**:

170 m/s ≅ 330.454 kt

An alternative is also that *one knot is approximately zero point zero zero three times one hundred seventy meters per second*.
