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 5.1 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 5.1 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

5.1 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 5.1 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 2.6236666666644 m/s

The final result is:

5.1 kt → 2.6236666666644 m/s

We conclude that 5.1 knots is equivalent to 2.6236666666644 meters per second:

5.1 knots = 2.6236666666644 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 0.38114597891025 × 5.1 knots.

Another way is saying that 5.1 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.38114597891025 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that five point one knots is approximately two point six two four meters per second:

5.1 kt ≅ 2.624 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point three eight one times five point one knots.
