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 438 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 438 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

438 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 438 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 225.32666666647 m/s

The final result is:

438 kt → 225.32666666647 m/s

We conclude that 438 knots is equivalent to 225.32666666647 meters per second:

438 knots = 225.32666666647 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 0.0044380011242975 × 438 knots.

Another way is saying that 438 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0044380011242975 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 thirty-eight knots is approximately two hundred twenty-five point three two seven meters per second:

438 kt ≅ 225.327 m/s

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