## 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 387 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 387 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

387 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 387 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 199.08999999983 m/s

The final result is:

387 kt → 199.08999999983 m/s

We conclude that 387 knots is equivalent to 199.08999999983 meters per second:

387 knots = 199.08999999983 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 0.005022853985639 × 387 knots.

Another way is saying that 387 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.005022853985639 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 eighty-seven knots is approximately one hundred ninety-nine point zero nine meters per second:

387 kt ≅ 199.09 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero five times three hundred eighty-seven knots.
