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 316 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 316 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

316 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 316 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 162.5644444443 m/s

The final result is:

316 kt → 162.5644444443 m/s

We conclude that 316 knots is equivalent to 162.5644444443 meters per second:

316 knots = 162.5644444443 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 0.0061514066216528 × 316 knots.

Another way is saying that 316 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0061514066216528 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 sixteen knots is approximately one hundred sixty-two point five six four meters per second:

316 kt ≅ 162.564 m/s

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