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 479 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 479 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

479 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 479 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 246.41888888868 m/s

The final result is:

479 kt → 246.41888888868 m/s

We conclude that 479 knots is equivalent to 246.41888888868 meters per second:

479 knots = 246.41888888868 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 0.0040581304643889 × 479 knots.

Another way is saying that 479 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0040581304643889 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-nine knots is approximately two hundred forty-six point four one nine meters per second:

479 kt ≅ 246.419 m/s

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