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 34.9 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 34.9 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

34.9 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 34.9 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 17.954111111096 m/s

The final result is:

34.9 kt → 17.954111111096 m/s

We conclude that 34.9 knots is equivalent to 17.954111111096 meters per second:

34.9 knots = 17.954111111096 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 0.055697549926713 × 34.9 knots.

Another way is saying that 34.9 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.055697549926713 meters per second.

Approximate result

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

34.9 kt ≅ 17.954 m/s

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