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 231 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 231 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

231 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 231 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 118.83666666656 m/s

The final result is:

231 kt → 118.83666666656 m/s

We conclude that 231 knots is equivalent to 118.83666666656 meters per second:

231 knots = 118.83666666656 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 0.0084149112226939 × 231 knots.

Another way is saying that 231 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0084149112226939 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 thirty-one knots is approximately one hundred eighteen point eight three seven meters per second:

231 kt ≅ 118.837 m/s

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