## 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 508 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 508 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

508 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 508 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 261.33777777755 m/s

The final result is:

508 kt → 261.33777777755 m/s

We conclude that 508 knots is equivalent to 261.33777777755 meters per second:

508 knots = 261.33777777755 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 0.0038264655363037 × 508 knots.

Another way is saying that 508 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0038264655363037 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 eight knots is approximately two hundred sixty-one point three three eight meters per second:

508 kt ≅ 261.338 m/s

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