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 270 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 270 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

270 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 270 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 138.89999999988 m/s

The final result is:

270 kt → 138.89999999988 m/s

We conclude that 270 knots is equivalent to 138.89999999988 meters per second:

270 knots = 138.89999999988 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 0.0071994240460825 × 270 knots.

Another way is saying that 270 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0071994240460825 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 seventy knots is approximately one hundred thirty-eight point nine meters per second:

270 kt ≅ 138.9 m/s

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