## 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 492 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 492 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

492 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 492 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 253.10666666645 m/s

The final result is:

492 kt → 253.10666666645 m/s

We conclude that 492 knots is equivalent to 253.10666666645 meters per second:

492 knots = 253.10666666645 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 0.0039509034399233 × 492 knots.

Another way is saying that 492 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0039509034399233 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 ninety-two knots is approximately two hundred fifty-three point one zero seven meters per second:

492 kt ≅ 253.107 m/s

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