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 253 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 253 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

253 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 253 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 130.15444444433 m/s

The final result is:

253 kt → 130.15444444433 m/s

We conclude that 253 knots is equivalent to 130.15444444433 meters per second:

253 knots = 130.15444444433 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 0.0076831798120248 × 253 knots.

Another way is saying that 253 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0076831798120248 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 fifty-three knots is approximately one hundred thirty point one five four meters per second:

253 kt ≅ 130.154 m/s

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