## 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 342 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 342 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

342 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 342 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 175.93999999985 m/s

The final result is:

342 kt → 175.93999999985 m/s

We conclude that 342 knots is equivalent to 175.93999999985 meters per second:

342 knots = 175.93999999985 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 0.0056837558258546 × 342 knots.

Another way is saying that 342 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0056837558258546 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-two knots is approximately one hundred seventy-five point nine four meters per second:

342 kt ≅ 175.94 m/s

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