## 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 260 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 260 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

260 kt → V_{(m/s)}

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

V_{(m/s)} = 260 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V_{(m/s)} = 133.75555555544 m/s

The final result is:

260 kt → 133.75555555544 m/s

We conclude that **260 knots is equivalent to 133.75555555544 meters per second**:

260 knots = 133.75555555544 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 0.0074763249709319 × 260 knots**.

Another way is saying that *260 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0074763249709319 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 sixty knots is approximately one hundred thirty-three point seven five six meters per second**:

260 kt ≅ 133.756 m/s

An alternative is also that *one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero seven times two hundred sixty knots*.
