## 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 172 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 172 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

172 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 172 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 88.484444444368 m/s

The final result is:

172 kt → 88.484444444368 m/s

We conclude that 172 knots is equivalent to 88.484444444368 meters per second:

172 knots = 88.484444444368 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 0.011301421467688 × 172 knots.

Another way is saying that 172 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.011301421467688 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 seventy-two knots is approximately eighty-eight point four eight four meters per second:

172 kt ≅ 88.484 m/s

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