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 237 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 237 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

237 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 237 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 121.92333333323 m/s

The final result is:

237 kt → 121.92333333323 m/s

We conclude that 237 knots is equivalent to 121.92333333323 meters per second:

237 knots = 121.92333333323 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 0.0082018754955371 × 237 knots.

Another way is saying that 237 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0082018754955371 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-seven knots is approximately one hundred twenty-one point nine two three meters per second:

237 kt ≅ 121.923 m/s

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