## 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 422 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 422 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

422 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 422 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 217.09555555537 m/s

The final result is:

422 kt → 217.09555555537 m/s

We conclude that 422 knots is equivalent to 217.09555555537 meters per second:

422 knots = 217.09555555537 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 0.0046062665697684 × 422 knots.

Another way is saying that 422 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0046062665697684 meters per second.

## Approximate result

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

422 kt ≅ 217.096 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero five times four hundred twenty-two knots.
