## 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 188 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 188 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

188 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 188 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 96.715555555472 m/s

The final result is:

188 kt → 96.715555555472 m/s

We conclude that 188 knots is equivalent to 96.715555555472 meters per second:

188 knots = 96.715555555472 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 0.010339598364055 × 188 knots.

Another way is saying that 188 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.010339598364055 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 eighty-eight knots is approximately ninety-six point seven one six meters per second:

188 kt ≅ 96.716 m/s

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