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 551 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 551 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

551 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 551 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 283.45888888864 m/s

The final result is:

551 kt → 283.45888888864 m/s

We conclude that 551 knots is equivalent to 283.45888888864 meters per second:

551 knots = 283.45888888864 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 0.0035278484436339 × 551 knots.

Another way is saying that 551 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0035278484436339 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 fifty-one knots is approximately two hundred eighty-three point four five nine meters per second:

551 kt ≅ 283.459 m/s

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