## 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 498 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 498 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

498 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 498 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 256.19333333311 m/s

The final result is:

498 kt → 256.19333333311 m/s

We conclude that 498 knots is equivalent to 256.19333333311 meters per second:

498 knots = 256.19333333311 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 0.0039033021936592 × 498 knots.

Another way is saying that 498 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0039033021936592 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-eight knots is approximately two hundred fifty-six point one nine three meters per second:

498 kt ≅ 256.193 m/s

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