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 340 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 340 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

340 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 340 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 174.91111111096 m/s

The final result is:

340 kt → 174.91111111096 m/s

We conclude that 340 knots is equivalent to 174.91111111096 meters per second:

340 knots = 174.91111111096 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 0.0057171896836538 × 340 knots.

Another way is saying that 340 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0057171896836538 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 forty knots is approximately one hundred seventy-four point nine one one meters per second:

340 kt ≅ 174.911 m/s

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