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 238 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 238 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

238 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 238 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 122.43777777767 m/s

The final result is:

238 kt → 122.43777777767 m/s

We conclude that 238 knots is equivalent to 122.43777777767 meters per second:

238 knots = 122.43777777767 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 0.0081674138337911 × 238 knots.

Another way is saying that 238 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0081674138337911 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-eight knots is approximately one hundred twenty-two point four three eight meters per second:

238 kt ≅ 122.438 m/s

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