## 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 38.4 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 38.4 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

38.4 kt → V_{(m/s)}

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

V_{(m/s)} = 38.4 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V_{(m/s)} = 19.75466666665 m/s

The final result is:

38.4 kt → 19.75466666665 m/s

We conclude that **38.4 knots is equivalent to 19.75466666665 meters per second**:

38.4 knots = 19.75466666665 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 0.050620950324018 × 38.4 knots**.

Another way is saying that *38.4 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.050620950324018 meters per second*.

## Approximate result

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

38.4 kt ≅ 19.755 m/s

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