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 308 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 308 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

308 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 308 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 158.44888888875 m/s

The final result is:

308 kt → 158.44888888875 m/s

We conclude that 308 knots is equivalent to 158.44888888875 meters per second:

308 knots = 158.44888888875 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 0.0063111834170204 × 308 knots.

Another way is saying that 308 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0063111834170204 meters per second.

Approximate result

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

308 kt ≅ 158.449 m/s

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