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 505 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 505 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

505 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 505 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 259.79444444422 m/s

The final result is:

505 kt → 259.79444444422 m/s

We conclude that 505 knots is equivalent to 259.79444444422 meters per second:

505 knots = 259.79444444422 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 0.0038491970147372 × 505 knots.

Another way is saying that 505 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0038491970147372 meters per second.

Approximate result

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

505 kt ≅ 259.794 m/s

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