## 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 512 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 512 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

512 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 512 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 263.39555555533 m/s

The final result is:

512 kt → 263.39555555533 m/s

We conclude that 512 knots is equivalent to 263.39555555533 meters per second:

512 knots = 263.39555555533 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 0.0037965712743013 × 512 knots.

Another way is saying that 512 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0037965712743013 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 twelve knots is approximately two hundred sixty-three point three nine six meters per second:

512 kt ≅ 263.396 m/s

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