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 242 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 242 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

242 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 242 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 124.49555555545 m/s

The final result is:

242 kt → 124.49555555545 m/s

We conclude that 242 knots is equivalent to 124.49555555545 meters per second:

242 knots = 124.49555555545 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 0.008032415258026 × 242 knots.

Another way is saying that 242 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.008032415258026 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 forty-two knots is approximately one hundred twenty-four point four nine six meters per second:

242 kt ≅ 124.496 m/s

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