## 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 518 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 518 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

518 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 518 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 266.48222222199 m/s

The final result is:

518 kt → 266.48222222199 m/s

We conclude that 518 knots is equivalent to 266.48222222199 meters per second:

518 knots = 266.48222222199 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 0.0037525955452554 × 518 knots.

Another way is saying that 518 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0037525955452554 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 eighteen knots is approximately two hundred sixty-six point four eight two meters per second:

518 kt ≅ 266.482 m/s

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