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 290 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 290 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

290 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 290 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 149.18888888876 m/s

The final result is:

290 kt → 149.18888888876 m/s

We conclude that 290 knots is equivalent to 149.18888888876 meters per second:

290 knots = 149.18888888876 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 0.0067029120429044 × 290 knots.

Another way is saying that 290 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0067029120429044 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 ninety knots is approximately one hundred forty-nine point one eight nine meters per second:

290 kt ≅ 149.189 m/s

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