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 470 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 470 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

470 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 470 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 241.78888888868 m/s

The final result is:

470 kt → 241.78888888868 m/s

We conclude that 470 knots is equivalent to 241.78888888868 meters per second:

470 knots = 241.78888888868 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 0.0041358393456219 × 470 knots.

Another way is saying that 470 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0041358393456219 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 seventy knots is approximately two hundred forty-one point seven eight nine meters per second:

470 kt ≅ 241.789 m/s

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