## 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 3 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 3 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

3 kt → V_{(m/s)}

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

V_{(m/s)} = 3 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V_{(m/s)} = 1.543333333332 m/s

The final result is:

3 kt → 1.543333333332 m/s

We conclude that **3 knots is equivalent to 1.543333333332 meters per second**:

3 knots = 1.543333333332 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 0.64794816414743 × 3 knots**.

Another way is saying that *3 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.64794816414743 meters per second*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **three knots is approximately one point five four three meters per second**:

3 kt ≅ 1.543 m/s

An alternative is also that *one meter per second is approximately zero point six four eight times three knots*.
