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 338 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 338 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

338 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 338 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 173.88222222207 m/s

The final result is:

338 kt → 173.88222222207 m/s

We conclude that 338 knots is equivalent to 173.88222222207 meters per second:

338 knots = 173.88222222207 meters per second

338 knots is equal to 173.882 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 0.0057510192084091 × 338 knots.

Another way is saying that 338 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0057510192084091 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 thirty-eight knots is approximately one hundred seventy-three point eight eight two meters per second:

338 kt ≅ 173.882 m/s

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