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 482 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 482 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

482 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 482 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 247.96222222201 m/s

The final result is:

482 kt → 247.96222222201 m/s

We conclude that 482 knots is equivalent to 247.96222222201 meters per second:

482 knots = 247.96222222201 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 0.0040328723909591 × 482 knots.

Another way is saying that 482 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0040328723909591 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 eighty-two knots is approximately two hundred forty-seven point nine six two meters per second:

482 kt ≅ 247.962 m/s

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