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 221 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 221 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

221 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 221 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 113.69222222212 m/s

The final result is:

221 kt → 113.69222222212 m/s

We conclude that 221 knots is equivalent to 113.69222222212 meters per second:

221 knots = 113.69222222212 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 0.0087956764363904 × 221 knots.

Another way is saying that 221 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0087956764363904 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that two hundred twenty-one knots is approximately one hundred thirteen point six nine two meters per second:

221 kt ≅ 113.692 m/s

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