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 263 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 263 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

263 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 263 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 135.29888888877 m/s

The final result is:

263 kt → 135.29888888877 m/s

We conclude that 263 knots is equivalent to 135.29888888877 meters per second:

263 knots = 135.29888888877 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 0.0073910436974992 × 263 knots.

Another way is saying that 263 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0073910436974992 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-three knots is approximately one hundred thirty-five point two nine nine meters per second:

263 kt ≅ 135.299 m/s

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