## 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 427 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 427 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

427 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 427 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 219.66777777759 m/s

The final result is:

427 kt → 219.66777777759 m/s

We conclude that 427 knots is equivalent to 219.66777777759 meters per second:

427 knots = 219.66777777759 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 0.0045523290221131 × 427 knots.

Another way is saying that 427 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0045523290221131 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-seven knots is approximately two hundred nineteen point six six eight meters per second:

427 kt ≅ 219.668 m/s

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