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 32.1 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 32.1 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

32.1 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 32.1 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 16.513666666652 m/s

The final result is:

32.1 kt → 16.513666666652 m/s

We conclude that 32.1 knots is equivalent to 16.513666666652 meters per second:

32.1 knots = 16.513666666652 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 0.060555903191348 × 32.1 knots.

Another way is saying that 32.1 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.060555903191348 meters per second.

Approximate result

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

32.1 kt ≅ 16.514 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero six one times thirty-two point one knots.
