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 311.8 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 311.8 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

311.8 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 311.8 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 160.40377777764 m/s

The final result is:

311.8 kt → 160.40377777764 m/s

We conclude that 311.8 knots is equivalent to 160.40377777764 meters per second:

311.8 knots = 160.40377777764 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 0.0062342671341959 × 311.8 knots.

Another way is saying that 311.8 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0062342671341959 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 eleven point eight knots is approximately one hundred sixty point four zero four meters per second:

311.8 kt ≅ 160.404 m/s

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